COLUMBIA, Missouri — Okay, we have less than a month before we venture to Costa Rica. We had our last class before Winter Break, and our next meeting will be at the airport. This trip is more than just a distant adventure now, it’s becoming real.
I am actually excited for all aspects of this trip. The airport hopping, the moment we arrive in Costa Rica and meet our team, the places we’ll visit and the people we’ll meet. Maybe I will get to practice the little and broken Spanish I know!
I am especially looking forward to seeing and hopefully interacting with the wildlife… even the gross bugs. I guess that’s all part of the adventure. I am a bit apprehensive about the weather and the significant temperature changes we will be experiencing, but that’s just strategic packing, I hope.
