Just a reminder, Sarah and I posted on another blog.  You are invited to check that out as well.
 
 
Well, after a week's work, we presented our final project.  As mentioned earlier, I feel blessed to have worked with a great group who shared talents and techniques that culminated to a great finished product.  I believe our birding garden would be a great addition to the campus.  Time will tell if it will get built.

Homestay

Part of my experience here in CR was staying 2 nights with a local San Luis family.  I was able to spend 2 nights with Blanca, a 70 something mother of 10 on her 80 hectare farm.  They produce milk and tilapia.  

Her home is the hub of 4 other homes close by that house some of her sons who run the farm.  Andrew and I stayed in the cabina, a small room apart from the main home.  It was  a wonderful experience being a part of everyday tico culture, from meals, to chores, to watching soccer and gameshows.  

I'll let the photos do the talking so make sure you read the captions.
 
 
While on my homestay, here are some of the wonderful colors I was able to find.  
 
 
Check out this video from our hike the other day.  There is a tree that saps this blood red liquid that when you rub it on your skin...well, check it out!

The family is headed to Costa Rica this summer for some study abroad and some family time away from the normal routine.  Yes, Sarah, Haley, and Whitney will be joining me during my study abroad program.  

We look forward to all the learning to be had, architecturally, socially and culturally.  More details to come.
