How are you doing? I haven’t heard from you for a few days. Are you still feeling under the weather? You know what I do when I have a cold? My mom makes me chicken soup and I drink lots of lemon tea with honey and garlic. Try it. It might work for you.
Now I need your advice! Do you remember my cousin Kym? She’s older than me, but we’re really close-like sisters. She’s the one who goes to the University of Victoria. Well, she wants to go somewhere warn for the Christmas holidays. She’s what we call a ‘’snowbird’’ in Canada-you know, someone who likes to fly south to escape the winter. She was talking about where to go this year, and I suggested she consider your country, Costa Rica. She thinks it’s a great idea. So she asked me if I would contact you and get some inside information about where to go, what to do, and where to stay. She’s planning to go with two of her friends and they’ll have to travel on a pretty tight budget. Kym and her friends are not typical tourists that like to hit all the big tourist spots. They’re pretty adventurous and like to explore out-of-the-way places. What do you suggest?
Of course, I’d like to tag along, but I don’t think I can talk my parents into it. But I had a good idea. You’ve never seen snow before, have you? why don’t you come and visit me this Winter? Kind of like a snowbird in reverse! We could go up to Whistler Mountain - it’s just a few hours inland from our place in Vancouver and we have a chalet up there! My dad went in on it with my uncle a couple of years ago and they’ve been spending the last few summers fixing it up. It’s really something now. And Whistler is totally awesome. It’s considered one of the top resorts in Canada. There’s always snow – and there are 33 lifts (and quite a few beginner slopes). There’s also a wonderful winter wildlife tour that we can go on! Whistler is very international, with restaurants serving cuisine from all over the world! and Whistler Village is set up for strolling, so we can get almost anywhere we want without worrying about transportation. And you don’t have to worry about the altitude either – it’s not too high and people rarely have trouble.
Anyway Maria, you just have to come! I promise it’ll be the best Christmas you’ve ever had. Ask your parents and tell me what they say!
