Lately, time seems to be passing very quickly. I find it hard to believe that I will home for Christmas in nearly 3 weeks. I'm trying to get in as much beach/surf time as I can before my flight on the 18th. I spent last weekend in Samara and the weekend before that in Tamarindo. I don't know what this weekend will bring, but I probably won't spend it in San Jose.
It really doesn't feel like Thanksgiving is tomorrow. Last week I realized that I really don't have many American friends here, but I still managed to find a small group of gringos to go out with tomorrow night. We have reservations at a restaurant in Escazu that serves a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. It will be nice to see friends that I haven't seen in a few weeks, and it's definitely better than sitting at home.
Well, I hope you all enjoy your long weekend! As for my family, I hope you don't miss my awesome stuffing too much. haha
P.S- I've been reading more Paulo Coelho lately and thought I would share...
"When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny."
