24 hours from now I will be waiting at the airport to leave Costa Rica.
Took the last finals of my undergrad years (many undergrad years!!) on Tuesday, got my grades. A couple A's, a couple B's. My credits will transfer to NAU, and they'll send me my diploma in the mail by the end of the month (hopefully!) No more homework! YAY!! At least, not until grad school...
Althought I'm sad to be leaving Costa Rica, I'm looking forward to more adventures in 2012, in Arizona, New Mexico and maybe a couple other states as well: The solar eclipse. A horse pack trip. A rafting trip in Grand Canyon. And hopefully my foot has healed up enough now to go backpacking again! Blue River, Black River, Powell Plateau, etc!
If you've enjoyed this journal, (which I admit I was not too good about keeping up with), keep watching for a few more photosets I am likely to post up when I feel moved to do so. I'll post a notice in this thread so you can find them.
This morning the birds are singing, as they always do in Puntarenas. Very early in the morning before the sun comes up, when it's very quiet, I can hear the little waves splashing on the beach a block away. The ferry to the Nicoya Peninsula blows its horn. Now, outside my window people walk to the bus or ride their bikes to work and to school. Not many cars. Right now, at 6:30 a.m. I am hot and sweating, have to get up and turn on my fan!
I'm going for a bike ride in a few minutes to get a few more photos.
Thanks for reading!
