That saturday we went to spend our day on the beach. I even signed up to take surfing lessons! OMG… I was so nervous but I was happy that I was doing it. The waves were really big! There was a big difference between practicing on the sand and then with the actual water which shows no mercy. I was surfing for a few hours and then I went back to the water after I was done. It was amazing seeing how far the water comes up by the middle of the day. There was barely any sitting room. I went to the hotel room for a minute to hang out at the pool and then followed Rebe back to the beach to watch the sunset. It took forever but I got some GOREGOUS pics.
Then we went to dinner and all thirty-something of us ate together. That night we went to a nigthtclub “Aqua”. We had a balcony view of the entire town. I enjoyed dancing and for once hearing english music I recognized.
After I returned to the hotel I prepared for the next morning where I would be going horseback riding. I was very excited but instantly became nervous when I saw the horses. The heat was also intense in the morning that I was concerned about passing out. One of the guys waved for me to come toward one of the horses and then told me to hop on. I looked at him like “You better help me” then I was assisted onto the horse. I was suprised that there were no instructions or tutorial on how to manuver with this horse but obiviously the horses knew what to do because they just started going. Eventually, I got the hang of riding but the saddle still hurt.
It is now the day after and my body HURTS! I have never been so sore….geez…..and then this weekend coming up we are going to NICARAGUA! I just can’t get a break. I feel like we are constantly on the go. Oh well….Its the last week of spanish class and I’m ready to knock it out.
