Week 1

Surviving in Costa Rica so far.  We arrived last Saturday and my host family had a lot of their extended family over for the entire weekend.  The first couple of days were overwhelming and intimidating, but I am adjusting to the family, cold showers, and meals consisting of little more than rice and vegetables.  Morning Spanish classes are very helpful – going over a lot of vocab and grammar that I have forgotten over the years.  Afternoon class is more challenging because it is more of a conversation group.  The school sets up other classes for us in the afternoon.  Took cooking and dancing classes this week.  They also took us on a tour of San Jose one afternoon.  It was good to get out of the tiny town of Guacima for a few hours.  This weekend a few of us traveled to Monteverde, where we went zip lining, took a buggy tour, a night walk, and hiked through the cloud rainforest.  Lots of good memories so far.

  4. Looks like you having a good time as well as getting use to it. I found the food to be a lot different than in the US and had to get use to it. Good luck.
