“Ugh why do we have to do this?” asked Samar.
Samar and I had just been pulled from the warm comforting waters of Costa Rica after about an 2 hours of kayaking. My dad had made us take a picture with our feet swallowed in the beautiful blue water.
Samar and I raced into the depths of the water. A sharp pain flew to a small point on my upper thigh.
“Ow! Mom something hurts really bad.”
The pain started to get worse. My eyes were filled to the brim with tears and with an extra bit of pain, they overflowed.
Our raft guide had a couple of pieces of ice so he gave them to me and once they were on my leg, the pain eased its way out of my leg.
“Well by the markings, I think you got stung by a jellyfish.” Mom told me.
In this picture, we are eating the fruits our guide brought us and I am holding a piece of ice to my leg, hence the pose.
