For our free day we decided to go zip lining!

The weather could not have been more indecisive – it was sunny and hot (I got some cankle burn), then it rained, then got “chilly” (cold for Costa Rica but not by your standards, most likely)

On my third zipline I got stung by a bee (my first sting ever!) while IN the air!  After I got off the zipline I got bit by a bullet ant (they are about an inch in size!).  Bullet ants get their name from the bite – the pain is described like being shot or 30 times as bad as a bee sting.  Since I had a direct comparison, I would agree!  My arm radiated heat for 5 hours after I was bit even after icing it.  I got chills so by 3:00pm I took a Benadryl and some aspirin and slept from 3pm to 6am the next morning!  I have a good team who took care of me!  Stupid ant!

Once it started raining the dirt/grease from the zipline splattered our faces – we were quite the site!  Overall, it was a great day!
