This week’s blog post is written by Chantz, Natalie, and Mallory.
Two days ago, we arrived at our second destination: Chilamate. Yesterday, we white water rafted in the Sarapiqui River. It was super fun; a couple people fell off, but there were no injuries.
At night, we cooked dinner at a local couple’s house. They had been married for 41 years and lived in Costa Rica their whole lives. They told us stories of how they met and showed us the animals they kept in their yard. It was really interesting to see some background into the areas we are staying and to hear stories from the locals.
We volunteered and painted at the local school today. It was exhausting at the beginning, but hanging out with the kids made it enjoyable.
So far, this trip has been incredible and we can’t wait to go to the next place. Over and out.
