Cerro La Vieja
Today, we went on a trek at Cerro La Vieja. For those of you who don't know Spanish, Cerro La Vieja literally translates to ¨Old Woman Mountain¨. Here, we did a 2.5 hour trek through the jungle. The trails were very rugged, and consisted of many steep up and downhill slopes, along with a couple river crossings. A lot times during this trek, there was a lot of garbage on the side of or directly on the path. We set a good example and we all helped pick up a lot of the garbage. Then, towards the end of the trek, we got to go to this part of the river that had a huge waterfall! There were spots on there where we could jump into the water too! That was really fun! For the final part of this journey, we went back to the main hotel that we did this through and we had a lunch there. The meal included selections such as rice, something that looked like calamari, many different types of fruits, and a desert of carrot cake or banana bread. During our lunch, we also watched the final game of the World Cup! For those of you who didn't get to catch the game, the final score was: The Netherlands - 0, Spain - 1! After all of this, we then drove back to Penonomé. Overall, it was fantastic day, and one that will definately be remembered!
