Zip Lining

Today we went zip lining and it was amazing. The view was nothing like any one on this trip has seen before, being 6,000 feet up a mountain surrounded by waterfalls, trees, and flowers. The zip lining also let some people get over fears like a lot of other activities we have done so far. This has been one of my favorite things that we have done so far. The tour guides were very friendly and helped encouraged the people who were scared to participate. Some students would also try to help the scared students to feel more comfortable and enjoy the trip more.

Salsa Dancing

Tonight we had salsa dancing lessons in Boquete, and it was amazing. Our teachers were very funny and taught us well. It was pretty easy, even though I have two left feet when it comes to dancing. There were other people around too and they were very friendly and did not mind us taking up a lot of room. Every once in a while we would switch partners, and me and my last partner got the one step down very well. I have never learned this dance before and it was a neat way to experience the cultural difference. This has been one of my many high lights of the trip, and I will probably never again experience this. This trip has also made me come out of my shell more because I know, with some activities, I will never have another chance to do it.
