March 26/Day 8 Costa Rica

It's been too busy to write and difficult to find internet.  Today we arrived at Catarata Eco-Lodge in La Fortuna, near the Arenal Volcano.  The rooms are clean, a swimming pool is near our rooms and the best thing is the toilets flush and we can take hot showers.  We're appreciating the comforts.

Yesterday, after we finished constructing eight tables for the Linda Vista School greenhouse, we had a Costa Rica vs. International soccer game with World Leadership School faculty and Berkeley Carroll group.  We won't say who won, but it was close!  There were many games, contests, food and dancing for all ages. 

The Linda Vista School community said good bye and thanked us for our work.

The Linda Vista boys, Kenneth, William and Joseph, who are in charge of the tables for the hydroponic garden that will provide healthy food for the students' meals.

Tomorrow we will hike to a waterfall and take a canopy tour (zip line, yikes!) of the Arenal volcano region.

We're a bit sad to leave our host families and Meghan and Davis, the owners of Chilamate Eco-Retreat.
