Another amazing day in Costa Rica… All the students rotated to engage in service, zip lining, horseback riding/waterfalls. Afterwards some went to the beach and others to try out surfing in the wonderfully warm waters of the pacific ocean.
Today while serving at the Escuela Puerto Nuevo, we had the opportunity to meet local families, play games with children, clear away tree branches, and offer school supplies to the children. It was an amazing community who were very welcoming and grateful. After the school service, a group of us headed to the beach for surfing. The ocean water was wonderfully warm and the surf instructors were fantastic (Tico Surf School – see link for amazing photos of our group). In the evening we had a local dance group come and preform for us as well as local artist, pottery star Gerardo Selva, who showed his pottery technique and made available some of his work for sale. Another amazing day in Costa Rica!
