With this post I am pleased to introduce you to the work of our group of students on the 2012 study abroad field reporting trip to Costa Rica. For many of them this is the first time they’ve posted to a blog.
They’re starting with brief impressions from what they’ve been reading and hearing in our pre-trip meetings. In another week or so they’ll introduce themselves. After some time off for the holiday break, we fly on Jan. 1 to Liberia, the capital of Guanacaste Province. Not long after our evening flight touches down, we’ll be filing to this blog and continuing to file almost every day.
The 2011 students set a high standard with what they produced below. We hope we can match their effort and the quality of their journalism. And, of course, we’ll do our best to go beyond.
We also hope that you’ll follow our blog, learn as we learn, and enjoy.
