Sunday we went to the waterfall in Santa Clara....it was awesome. I sat under the waterfall for a good 30minutes...it was the best showerlike experience i´ve had since my arrival in Santa Clara. In the afternoon it poured so a couple of us played Bingo. OHH and how can i forget. Panama elected their president on Sunday...Martinelli won--I didn´t leave the house cause ppl were kinda crazy celebrating...nothing like the way we celebrate in gainesville for national championships but in their own way...shooting guns in the air...honking their horns...fireworks...that kinda stuff.
MOnday we got to work with our Machetes. I dug out a ditch with a pick ax, and cleard the side of a mountain with my machete.
TUesday I didn´t even celebrate 5 de Mayo! so sad but at night we went to Arreijan. We were gonna use the internet but just ended up eating dinner. One ppl in the group broke a glass table that they tried to make us pay for but we didn´t.
Wednesday we made a semillero and got out chickens!!! we vaccinated all the chickens and set up their home! In the afternoon I did my nails and eyebrows and packed for my trip!
My trip to Visit MAX:
He said hello and asked me if i was ready to walk...in my head i said, how hard can it me right....
Almost 2 hours later and a couple pounds lighter we arrived at Max´s house. It had an incredible view...but i was just happy to drink water...lol. The rest of the afternoon we played cards with the kids that live nearby, played with his rabbits, sat on the hammock, ate dinner, and went to sleep (max gave me his bed and bug net and he slept on the hammock outside....I still got eaten up by bugs...can u imagine if i had slept outside!!!)
Friday we went to ¨pasear¨ , see one of his fish tank projects, visit a couple families, and down to the river. At the river i snorkeled and swam and we slid down some rapids. the raft we used looked like something directly out of a huckleberry finn story...a couple tubes tided together with a super long stick to push forward. In the aternoon we ate lunch back at his house and played with the kids and chilled. Saturday we ate breakfast and set out on an hour hike up the hill to a neighbors house to see another fish tank we made it back by 1, had lunch and talked all afternoon about how to set up (step by step) each of the projects i want to set up at my site. I got really excited I even drew a map ( a couple actually) of how i want the set up to be. I want to have: a clay oven, a chicken project, rabbit project, fish project, a Garden, a Horse, and a Cat! I will explain it all later i´m sure. Right now i need to get to work on the research behind each thing.
