To the Beach
After 12 days of being on the farm it was time to return to the Nuñez house. Of course, when I got there is when I found out that my computer was still nonresponsive, and so, I ended up leaving it behind with a friend of the Nuñez family during my duration at the beach.
Getting to the beach from the Nuñez house was an interesting experience. I woke up at 2 a.m. and jumped in the bed of the Nuñez truck with a bunch of bedding, blankets, and produce surrounding me. They put a tarp over me to keep me hidden and warm. Even though it seemed completely illegal, I was far too comfortable and tired to care. Ha! We drove to a farm in Guanacaste. I plugged my headphones in and was able to sleep throughout the entire ride. We arrived at round 6 a.m.
When the Nuñezes lifted the tarp, I realized that I was back at a farm. Not that being at a farm is necessarily a bad thing, but it is not what I had wanted after my recent experience. All I wanted to do was to get to the beach. So, soon after my arrival to this new farm, the Nuñezes were kind enough to drop me off at a bus station in Nicoya where I took the bus to Playa Sámara (Pacific beach on the Nicoya Peninsula). There, I found a job working at Las Mariposas hostel.
