Last day of Spanish class! Today Eugenia showed us the Costa Rica flag and told us what each color meant. The white "el blanco the white is la Paz the peace" the blue "el azul Es el cielo the sky" the red "el rojo Es la sangre del Los Costaricencios, the blood of Costaricans". Then Eugenia told us about the traditional wear of the Costaricans when they have celebrations. Now off we went to an adventure! We went to the Palo Verde, Tempesque River for a boat tour. The boat tour was given by Giovani, he told us about the tide how "it could go up to 16 feet" and as low as "3 feet". We saw a heron bird and found out "they're predators to the baby crocodiles". Giovani was whistling to call the monkeys and as we came close we started to see the white face 🐵monkeys and we had the chance to see a mama monkey with her baby monkey! They were so cute eventually the monkeys came on the boat started jumping on us and eating the bananas we fed them. There was one monkey which I guessed saw or smelled the banana which was put away and took the banana it was so funny! As we went up the river we started seeing crocodile heads. Then we so happened to run out of fuel and a big crocodile came by us and our boat driver Ulisses took a risk and fed the crocodile! In the end we got back and now we went to eat.
For lunch we had casado and we had a special dessert which was arroz con leche. Later we went to the Sunburst coffee shop for a coffee demonstration ☕️ and we seen how natural the process is and it was really cool.
Afterwards we went to the mall. It was not what I expected to be,because there weren't many stores and it was rather small. But it interesting to see where Costaricans shop for their clothes. And it was different because the item where much cheaper and they also had a movie theater in it. Next we went to the plaza and interviewed the people that lived there.we asked them questions like why they love costa rica and what they love to do here. Our day was exciting and amusing! We're sad it's over In the evening we explored the city of Liberia and interviewed the locals.
