After lunch the group had a little while to relax and at 1:30p we wnt to the house of a man named Freddy Trejo. Freddy works with the volunteers quite a bit and takes groups on excursions. The plan for the afternoon was to hike to a nearby waterfall, but freddy wasn't there to join us. Instead a local boy named Pedro (and someone Erik knew well) joined us on the hike to the falls. The hike took us about 40 minutes through the secondary coastal rainforest. The group seemed to have a blast on the hike and tredged through a stream, passed a lot of nature, tried fresh cacao (what chocolate comes from) among other adventures. Everyone was at the falls for about 45minutes and before heading back to the station. As we neared the station students had the option to visit a lookout point and some excepted the offer and others went back to the station or beach. It wasn't until we were posing for pictures some of us noticed that we were standing on an ant hill (of which the ants were dime size). Rachel and Erik got bit, (nothing bad) but it didn't deter the picture taking at the lookout point. When that group was done they returned to join the rest of the group getting cleaned up at the station before dinner.
Dinner was pasta (a nice change) and the sauce for non-vegetarians was an alfredo with chicken, broccoli, and cauliflower and of course fresh lemonade.
After dinner, the group stuck around playing games in the dining room for quite a while before calling it a night.
