My trip was wonderful. I spent 8 days riding a bus around a country the size of West Virginia (51,000 square kilometers, or about 32,000 square miles). I waded in both the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic (Caribbean Sea). I did things I had never done: rode a horse, tubed down what is the Colorado River in the US, talked to a 98-year-old man, got poured on for 3 days straight in the rainforest, went to a coffee plantation, a pineapple farm, and a banana plant, and stayed in everything from bungalows to five-star hotels. I met awesome people and learned awesome history about the country. I learned that it has no army and focuses on education and the temperature is pretty much always in the 80s because it's on the equator. I (might have) lost five pounds. All in all it was a successful vacation.
So today begins my job search. If anyone needs an under-the-table tutor or anything, hit me up.
