Last night I went to eat dinner by myself at a cute little restaurant called Colibri about which I had heard excellent things and I was not disappointed! Since I have had an abundance of fish lately, I had falafel and salad, which was absolutely delicious! When I finished my dinner, I thought that I might go out for just a little while, so I took a little walk in that direction. On my way, I happened to run into a guy from Trip Advisor with whom I had talked about San Juan del Sur. Although we had been trying to meet up for days, it had just never happened because surprise, surprise, my phone is not working here. So it was super cool that I was able to meet him, and interesting also that I happened to see him the day before he is leaving for New York!
After that, I went to another place thinking I would have just one drink, and I ended up running into this guy from London named Simon who I had met the night before at a store where none of the drinks were cold. Obviously because it is so hot, I wanted COLD drinks, so he had showed me the way to another store! As it turns out, he is an Aires like me, in fact April 16th is his birthday, just three days before mine! So we talked all about our Aires-ness, our crazy adventures, and our love of TRAVEL! Really, it was exactly what I needed, as over the past week I have spent an immense amount of time contemplating various aspects of my life that seemed to be issues. So it was definitely awesome to be reminded that some of these things are just who I am and it is perfectly FINE! Yes, us Aries people may be what others would consider strange in many ways. We go after what we want, go on crazy adventures and such on our own, and we have no issues doing it alone. In fact, often we even prefer it that way! Really, this is just who we are and it is actually perfectly in sync with how we live our lives to the fullest by taking advantage of our limitless Aries energy!
Following this enthralling conversation, Simon was walking me back to my hostel when we heard some good music and he asked me, “Do you want to go and check it out?” So we followed the music and encountered some super friendly hippies hanging out with another guy from here at their car who said that they were not able to get into the party. All we could see were security guards and some serious stairs leading up to some huge, loud party. Then when I started talking to these people at their car, one of the guys suddenly asked, “Are you Cristin from Phoenix?” As it turns out, Gonzo had messaged me on Couchsurfing because he and his friend Brian were coming here and he had seen that I was here. How random that I happened to meet them outside of this party! Gonzo and I tried once more to get in, and Simon also tried, however, they were right, they certainly would not let us in, so we left in pursuit of a new adventure!
Gonzo and Brian are on a road trip from Colorado, so we got in the car and when we came to a point with an uphill road, Gonzo said, “Let’s go up!” So Brian drove up there and we arrived at a gorgeous lookout point. Then Gonzo cranked up the radio and we all got out for a minute. Crazily enough, the song on the radio kept saying, “¡Nada es imposible para ti!” Wow, how perfect is that as we were forbidden from entering the party, but we finally get to the top of this hill and there was a song in Spanish saying, “Nothing is impossible for you!” All of this was extremely profound because we had just been talking about synchronicity and how I had run into three people in one evening, which certainly means that I am indeed in the right place at the right time! What an amazing confirmation from the Universe that I am indeed on the right path!
Finally, we ended up at this Crazy Crab dance club and we danced for what seemed like hours! When Gonzo and Brian left, Simon and I sat down to have something to drink. Then some guy sat down next to us and started telling us his story about how his dad is a billionaire and how he will get everything, which will make him a billionaire. Simon and I kind of looked at each other with that kind of look thinking, “Wow, how nice for him.” Then he had the perfect response for this guy in that he told him that people like us have to actually work for what we want, and make it all happen ourselves, yet he said it in such a tactful manner that I must say I was rather impressed! At that moment, I decided to share my story with this guy and ask him since he is a billionaire, if he would like to sponsor my blog so I can continue being a gypsy traveler writer! Hey, nada es imposible para mi, right? So why not ask for what I want?
