Just for fun, this is roughly what I wrote in 2006, two days before going on my Central America Trip:
Putz time goes by fast. I travel the day after tomorrow!
I can’t believe that I really am doing this… But now there is no escape! Oh and I do not even want to escape, because the FUN IS NON-STOP.
I’ve already started packing… thats a lie. Oh who do I want to fool? As a good Brazilian I leave everything for last minute.
I already went to the pharmacy, I bought what I’m going to take. Today I need to get my tent at Marina’s house, and I’ll start packing everything. Difficult to know what to bring … bikinis, clothes to trail, to travel … and I need to save on the weight of the backpack, because my back can not take more suffering.
Aaaaaaaff I do not know because I’m writing all this, I swear that when the trip starts everything will get more interesting.
Ah I think I will not spend the New Year in Mal Pais, I was told that Tamarindo is more exciting … yeaaaah
Kisses kisses and a very beautiful Christmas to you !!!!!
