We consider billiard trajectories on the geodesic triangle $D$ in the hyperbolic half-plane with internal angles $0,0$ and $\pi /2$ at the vertices $\infty,1$, and $i$. The billiard map of $D$ sends a given trajectory $\gamma$ with the boundary $\delta D$ of $D$ to the next intersection point of $\gamma$ with $\delta D$.
By choosing an appropriate cross section for the billiard map, we show that the decay of correlation of the first return map is slower than $n^-2$. As a by-product, we enumerate the billiard trajectories in terms of their cutting sequences and relate the boundary expansion of the billiard map to continued fractions with even partial quotients.
