We had a field trip the day after school was out . I dont think they do it every year, I think it was a special one because our teacher and Michelle and Tamara are leaving this year.
They kept it a surprise from us. We knew we were going to San Jose on a tour bus, but we did not know where.
Tamara and Michelle had never been to the City. They've also never been on a plane.
Sometimes I forget that things are different here. The country is smaller so they dont have to fly anywhere to go see their families.
We got on the bus at 6am. It took three hours to get to San Jose. The night before, Monkey gave me an early birthday present. It was the new Diary of a Whimpy kid book. Tomas and I read it on the bus on the way there.
We went to an amusement park called Parque Diversiones. I think it means 'Fun Park' in english.
They had so many cool rides!
A lot of the rides were water rides. I think theyd be great on a really hot day, but it wasnt really hot when we were there. It also wasnt really busy, so that was nice. The first ride we went on was a roller coaster. In Costa Rica, a roller coaster is called a Montaña Rusa.
We also played some games. Ball throwing, Shooting games, and other things. Nobody ever won anything though.
One of the rides we went on was in an inner tube. It went down a water slide then, it turned into a very slow drift down a lazy river. I thought it was a little boring but nice, because my mom only went on this ride and the train with me. She doesnt really like rides. Especially if you get wet.
My favorite ride was the big splash water ride. I went on it five times. We went on it so many times we didnt have time to ride all the other rides. But it was so fun!
This was us . Tomas, me, Tamara, Nicole, Sharon and Michelle. We spent the whole day together.
We have more guests in the casita this week. There are kids too! This will be the first guests with children this year.
My dad took the picture of this blogs interesting creature.
Its hard to see, and when you first see it, it looks like a snake. If you zoom in though, you can see it has legs.
