More of Day 8
This afternoon we decided to walk around town some, and got an early dinner there. The food was really good and the plates were huge too. I got tacos, which are different in Costa Rica than in the United States. The tacos here are rolled, and then fried. Chris decided to try the arroz con pollo here (chicken with rice), which is a typical Costa Rican meal. It's basically just a pile (normally nicely shaped) of rice and chicken with various spices, peppers, and seasoning. After dinner we walked around town some more and found the Serpentario de Monteverde (a reptile house) which was really awesome. They had some really cool looking snakes as well as some lizards, turtles, and frogs. We got some pretty cool pictures of most of the reptiles there, but unfortunately they're on the camera that we didn't bring the cable for, so you'll have to wait until we get home to see those. We also got a zip lining tour set up for tomorrow, most of the places in town are around the same price, but we found one that gave a small student discount. The shuttle will pick us up tomorrow at 8am and take us into the Moteverde cloud forest, where the zip lines are. I've never been zip lining (Chris has) but it sounds pretty awesome.
