We made it to Costa Rica! After leaving Trinity at 2 a.m., we arrived in Costa Rica at 2 p.m. and settled comfortably into our Coronado complex where we are staying. Thankfully, we left the cold weather back in Chicago and were pleasantly greeted by 80 degrees and sunshine. After exploring the area where we were staying, we took a trip to the local market. There we had some of our first experiences with the Costa Rican culture. We enjoyed a common Costa Rican dinner of rice, frijoles, carne, and plantains. Tomorrow we will have a full day of mission work and soccer.
