La Playa - Villas del Pacifico

The past weekend we got the awesome opportunity of chilling on the beach. We left Saturday morning for a windy trip down the mountains to the coast. On the way we stopped at McDonalds for lunch, but with the roads none of us were really up to eating too much.

Our resort was called Villas del Pacifico. It is a gorgeous, all-inclusive resort with a private black-sand beach. After checking in we headed straight for the ocean, of course. We spent most of the weekend fighting currents and swimming in the waves. Most of the bigger waves were between 6 and 8 feet, and often had fish swimming in them. I got the joy of riding the tops of many waves, and of also being washed under and tossed around quite a few times. Fortunately we all stayed safe, and avoided getting pulled completly out to the sea.

It was an awesome weekend of relaxation and sunshine. I came back with only burned in the armpits... ouch. Others were not so lucky, and one person even missed school yesterday because he was burnt so badly.

Now we're off and running in our third week of language school - this week I have a 10 minute presentation and a 45 minute debate! If you don't here from me for a while, that's why!We're doing well, and are having a blast. Keep the US news coming!
