Friday, February 27: Santa Rosa to Monteverde
This morning we packed up camp and headed on the bus the Monteverde. Sarah and I had to search through the woods for our tent bag, which had probably blown away when our tent blew away. It was not fun, but we finally found it. I thought for sure it was gone. On the way we stopped at Las Pumas cat zoo and did species reports on all the cats. We saw margays, ocelots, pumas, and jaguars! We got to get so close, we could easily stick our hands in the cages if we wanted too. It was really cool. After more time on the bus we stopped outside of Monteverde for pizza. It was sooooo good! Then we got ice cream from the Monteverde cheese factory. It was so good. I can’t wait to eat that all the time. A little bit more on the bus and we finally got to Monteverde! It was so exciting! The bus couldn’t make it up the hill to the station, so we had to walk. It’s quite the hill, that should be fun. We got our rooms, I’m with Emy, Val and Sarah Stas. Then we all grabbed our computers and sat on the internet catching up on our lives for the rest of the night.
