Now the real travels begin. This year’s summer vacation destination: Central America.
Our Lonely Planet guidebook didn’t have much good to say about Costa Rica’s capital city of San José. In a lot of ways it looked and felt like we were still in Los Angeles, but Andreas and I had a fun day bopping around the city. It gave us a chance to brush up our Spanish, get new sim cards, and generally get the hang of the place. While we were out playing, Alekka worked on a physics write-up back at the hotel. At an IB high school you do get homework in the summer. There are a few benefits to being a grown-up!
