A Busy Weekend
Punteranas was having a carnaval and Salsa festival with Oscar De Leon, a famous salsa musician. We arrived to the beach around 9:30/10am. I realized that I packed WAY too much for a day trip to the beach. We walked around for hours trying to find a hotel and found none available. I didn’t know we were going to be partying as well I thought we were just going to be planted on the beach. When none of us could find a hotel we just found a storage area to change and put our bags for safe keeping while we are walking around. The entire day was a little frustrating. I was tired of carrying around all that stuff. But after we all changed we went to get churchill ice cream sundaes. It was like strawberry flavored snowcone with pie crust in the middle and more strawberry flavor at the bottom. Topped with whipped cream and on the side they gave you little tin cans that looks like tuna and its condensed milk flavoring to put on the sundae. MMMMM! To die for! Then we walked to find a place to sit and relax. We also went on the banana boat ride which was a first for me. I thought I was going to fall off that little inner tube but we all had fun being in the water. Halfway through our walking one of the members of our group disappeared and I didn’t see him for the rest of the trip, he missed out on the Churchills and banana boat. After the concert with De Leon, it turned out that he went back to San Jose and didn’t tell anyone. The beach all together was fun and good to get away from San Jose and my program.
