Luke had met Amanda and Lina at the hostel the night before. They had been traveling together for a few weeks.It was very clear right away that Amanda was the flexible one going along with Lina as they bounce from one place to another. Amanda was asking us about the Lake so Luke pulled out his travel guide and Lina shrugged at him saying "oh you have one of those!" Now I'm all for spontaneous travel and not fully relying on guides but information never hurts. Amanda chimed in saying how it's nice to not know where you're going but during their travels they wasted so much time trying to figure things out and trying to get from one place to another. They found out that we were headed to Ometepe. Amanda started talking Lina into going. Lina's response to every question or suggestion was "I don't know". She didn't know where she wanted to go or when. She did not want to plan anything. She kept shooting down ideas without giving a reason. Amanda was pretty frustrated. Luke and I thought it was pretty amusing but we decided to stay out of it and let the two of them work it out.
