Everest Student Costa Rica trip progressing well - daily journal:
We flew into San Jose, and made our way to Arenal, an active volcano in central Costa Rica. We spent the morning volunteering at a school, helping with cleaning and maintenance. The students really enjoyed dancing, chatting, and playing games with the Costa Rican kids. Afterwards, we headed out to the lake for some kayaking (and swimming) in the shadow of the volcano. We ended the day at the hot springs, relaxing under waterfalls, and zipping down waterslides. In the evening we bused back to our little oasis in the mountains.
Better than shovelling snow here in Toronto!
