Well, I have sucessfully burned myself a into a nice shade of red! I knew it would happen. The sun here is so strong. We laid out yesterday and I made the mistake of laying on a step in the pool...maybe not a great idea...reflection of sun off of the water as well as the scorching rays sizzling my tender skin from the top makes a nice combo! Fortunately the burn here lasts a night and then I am brown the next day! I have a pretty good base tan, so, I am not in fear of peeling. Yesterday was a really chill out day...lay by the pool, watch Justin almost kick the shit out of some idiot with poor communication skills, go in town to Jaco, shop a bit and sign up for surf lessons...yep surf lessons this should be some good video for the site! We came back to the hotel Justin worked I relaxed and then off to the bar for and evening of Mohito's!!!!!!! Yeah Baby Yeah! Time to head to town for some surf lessons...catch ya'll later!
Love and (wish me luck) JJ

We are going on a canopy tour this morning. This is the one thing I did not want to go on. But, because I renegged on the whitewater rafting expedition I had to go on this lovely little adventure. Canopy...sounds fun and relaxing right? The Canopy tour is a set of cables strung between trees a 100+ feet in the air and you glide on the ropes between the trees!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH... DID I MENTION I AM AFRAID OF HEIGHTS! So, harnessing myself up, climbing up to the tree tops in the jungle, and gliding on cables dangling above the ground 100' up in the air in a 3rd world country is not my idea of a relaxing vacation! We get to the location and I am scard to death but trying to deal with it in a mature calm fashion (basically kicking , screaming and crying!, LOL) We get harnessed up and start our treck through the jungle and to the tree tops. It was cool the guide was explaining the surrounding vegetation..first up the whine tree! What are the odds of that???!!! Then we looked at a few natural water falls and to the top we went. Of course the whole adventure was cought on video tape for all to watch. The guide explained how to work the rigs and the signs he would give to brake etc...I couldn't understand a fricken word he said...not a good sign! He hooked me up and off I went...what a rush it was really incredible! Well, until I found out we had 6 more to go! On the longest one I got turned around and was goin backwards on the cable...oh joy oh joy! To end the little excursion I repelled 100' down to the ground!!! It was AWESOME!!!! I really had a great time...don't know if I will do it again, but it was fun. OH, and Justin's cable broke and he plumetted to his death...just playing.

Yetsterday was a nice romantic day driving around Costa Rica and seeing the sites. We rented a truck ($125 a day!! Holy rip off!)and drove down the coast and up to Manuel Antonio Nat'l Park. It was really beautiful. White beach and breath taking scenery. We had lunch at he oddest restaurant(you will see the pictures and see what I mean). It was an old army carrier Plane set on top of the mountain! Odd yes, good food yes! From lunch we hopped back into the car and headed off to Villa Caletos to watch the sunset. The drive was a bit longer than we expected and we missed the sunset by like 15 minutes! I suggested to Justin we just stop and watch it from the coastline we had been driving by for the past hour...you know men.."oh, no we will make it!" As usual who is right? ME! lol. We had a few drinks there. The poeple were a bit on the stuffy side there,so ,we decided to head back to Los Suennos for dinner. It was a really nice evening ending with a huge arrangment of roses and some incredible sex on the balcony!!!!
