Then i went to the van and we drove away! Haha. We went to a house of my moms friend and It was half hidden in the jungle although we loved it. Fantastic it was! Costa rica rocks! We had to move apartments and my new friend came over (disguising thier names as Addela, Chloe, and Jacob.) Continue next result.
