R&R - that's Turri Time and Salsa
After a very early start at jungle camp and a lot of training, there was a little time at the end of the day yesterday for some R & R. The venturers discovered what local shopping opportunities there are in Turrialba ("Turri Time"). Rodeo Drive it ain't; but then if you're only after mossie spray and wet wipes it's just the job.
Then after supper it was time for Salsa. K-dawg and Jae, our resident snake-hipped salsa king and queen, were the instructors.
There were some warm-up exercises, including getting the "salsa face" right - basically that's having a huge smile and looking like you're enjoying yourself - which inevitably you are.
After some expert coaching by the end of the evening I'd say everyone had mastered the technique. The HCVs partnered up with those that were less sure and the dance floor was swinging to those Latin American beats.
