Late Night Karaoke and the Bus Back to San Jose

December 31, 2014 - 5:33 pm 1 Comment

Last night, we headed into Quepos for dinner. The meal was decent, but the town is sketchy as hell. Aside from the odd restaurant or convenience store being open, the town is dark and silent. Drug addicts and dead or very sleepy dogs lay on steps next the bus station. I definitely don’t want to stick around here for New Year’s. Might as well head back to San Jose with the rest of the group this afternoon and hope for the best.

After returning to our resort hotel, we popped into the bar for karaoke night. Marie and Chedine (sheh-deen) blew away everyone away with their rousing rendition of “Zombie”. I hit everyone with the 1-2 punch of “I’m Too Sexy” and “The Girl from Ipanema”.

After a quick dip in the pool and a delicious mahi mahi sandwich, it was time to get back on the bus and head back to San Jose.

The trip took a few hours. I tried to pass the time by playing Yahtzee on my phone with Chedine, but she literally fell asleep in the middle of her turn.

Now back in the hotel in San Jose. Outside, the sun is setting on the final day of 2014. This is the last night we’re together as a group, so we’ll be heading into central San Jose for a farewell dinner. If everything goes to plan, I’ll be ringing in the new year at a bullfight.

¡Feliz año nuevo!
