Day 5: After a brief stopover in the mini state of San Salvador,
After a brief stopover in the mini state of San Salvador, the capital of which has the highest murder rate in the world, we arrived in Costa Rica punctually at 4:00 PM. From there, we immediately headed northeast in a minibus.
After crossing the Central Cordillera, we arrived in San Jamon de Sarapaiqui. Tonight we will sleep right in the jungle. That's why everyone was supposed to purchase a mosquito net before the trip. We'll see if the other expedition members will be able to sleep.
Whoever has never spent a night in a rain forest, will probably not sleep a wink because of all the strange noises. Plus there are all kinds of creatures waiting to be their bedmate in their hammock or sleeping bag!
At any rate, nobody is going to forget the approaching night! At least, that's what the comments from the last expedition expressed. "Wimps" do have the option of seeking refuge in a hotel, but we don't have any in our group. :-)
