Wait… You mean to tell me this is our last Monday in San Jose? Does that mean this is our last rapiditas Monday!? Mama tica always makes rapiditas for breakfast on Monday. Rapiditas being 2 mini bean and cheese quesadillas and one chicken and cheese quesadilla. Mmmmmm. Our favorite!!! But wait. This is our last rapiditas day!? Nooooooo!
Well, actually its not… cause we asked mama tica if she’d make them one more time this week since they’re our favorite.
Today was our last Latin American Culture class- which meant our final….which I didn’t study for. So as you can imagine I was a little nervous for the test; especially considering the last exam was extremely difficult. (I did get a 100% on that exam, but that was only because he made it open note/open internet for us exchange students. I also think he was an easy grader on us.) Turns out the exam was pretty simple- gracias a dios. And the last two hours of the class was spent watching the tico student’s presentations…well, most of them. Two groups didn’t follow the instructions very well and profe chewed them out infront of the class. That was awkward, and inappropriate to say the least.
Before class I went to the library with Kelley and Lizzie for the first time. Yepp, I really had never stepped foot in our library before. From the entrance it looked really small, and like it was one room, so I never bothered. Turns out its huge, has studying areas, and is really nice and pretty and filled with plants. Well, can’t say I got good use of that amenity while I was here. Opps. Oh well.
But when class was over us gringas (Erica, Scarlet, Lizzie, Kelley and I) went to go get Cosechas Los Yoses (smoothies and milkshakes) to celebrate! I got my favorite flavor here in Costa Rica- Chocolate banana. SOO GOOD!
The rest of the day was spent chilling at home with my tica family.
Last Monday in Costa Rica = checked off.
Ahhhh thats so sad!
So San Jose was pretty cool today… Like, 65 degrees, guys. Cold, I know. Sitting around my house I got cold and decided to wear my Costa Rican poncho I bought in January. I realized that it was crazy that I was wearing a poncho in Costa Rica, since this place is supposed to be warm, and decided to take a photo…well, photos. When I uploaded them from my tablet to my gmail account, google combined these photos make this hilarious gif. Enjoy!
