out in SJ!

On route to Puerto Viejo, I had to go back to San Jose (pretty much where you have to go to get anywhere.)  I hadn't spent any time in SJ yet so I decided to stay a couple nights.  I got to Pangea late that night, met some guys from Finland at the hostel, they invited me out with them, I wasn't really in the mood so I decided not to.  Then 10 minutes later I changed my mind, I didn't want to just sit around myself I knew I'd get depressed!  haha so I went out with them and had a great time!  The next afternoon I was sitting in my room and experienced my first earthquake!  On 1/8 around 1 pm all of a sudden everything started shaking like crazy, it was so weird I didn't know what to do !  My instinct was just to stand up and grab the bed, which probably wasn't what I was supposed to do, it went on for about 10 seconds or so, and I got such an adreniline rush !! It was nuts!  It was about a 6.2 on the richter scale, there was alot of damage in CR.  Inside of Volcano Poas, two young girls died that were selling candy to tourists :(  Very sad.  The next day I took off for Puerto Viejo.
