It's hard to believe, but this is our last night in Costa Rica! We made our way from Playa Hermosa to San Jose with a few stops for food and souvenirs along the way. This evening half of our group is in the mountains for a cultural dinner while the other half will enjoy a buffet near the hotel. With a 2:30 am wake up time tomorrow, we will certainly go to bed early.
Looking back, this has been an absolutely wonderful trip. We had a few sunburns along the way, which is to be expected traveling with a large group, but our students showed the humor and flexibility of seasoned travelers when challenges presented themselves. I hope your students have come home with enough stories, selfies, and inside jokes to fuel months of conversations. I will try to post a few more pictures as they become available and there will eventually be a short video of our trip, but this will be the last post from Costa Rica. Thank you for reading and I hope the updates were helpful and just a little entertaining.
Tomorrow will be a long day of travel, but I know the prevalence of American cuisine and functioning data plans will help it pass quickly. See you at the airport!
