Hello Parents:
I just spoke to Susan Crook, who told me the group is almost through customs. Thankfully, we were able to rebook them on the last flight out of Atlanta to Richmond. Here is the new flight info.

Hello Parents:
I just spoke with Susan Crook who has landed in Atlanta with all of the students. Unfortunately the computer systems are down in the airport and there is a chance that the group may miss their connection onto Atlanta tonight. We are working with Delta to see what the options are. We'll update this blog as soon as there is further news, and we're working to get this group home asap. Please call WLS on (303) 679-3412 if you have any questions.

¡Pura Vida!

Hi all!

We are having a fabtastic time in Costa Rica. We stayed in the Chilamate Ecolodge on Friday night and started Saturday with a nature walk in the beautiful Chilamate rainforest.  After our walk, we spotted a hidden sloth, and then we enjoyed sweet coconuts and learned about the uses of various bitter Costa Rican plants while sitting on the banks of the Sarapiqui River. We played fĂștbol and painted some awesome handmade pots with a local artisan before driving to Lago Jalapa to meet our amazing host families. We enjoyed getting to know our “Tico” families on Saturday night, and on Sunday morning, we went on a boat tour of Lago Jalapa. Today we washed various-sized rocks, painted the doors, and dug holes as part of our project for a local school and also had time to get to know the adorable students. Next, the group travelled back to Chilamate to go for a quick swim, which was refreshing after working in the heat all morning. Lastly, we had a magical experience chocolate farm and got to test chocolate in all of its stages leading up to its final candy bar stage–delicioso! More to come soon!

Pura Vida,

Costa Rica X-Term 2016
