Costa Rica- October 2013

It’s Christmas break from teaching, which means I get to catch up on my blog posts!  I had the fantastic opportunity to go to Costa Rica over my fall break in October and visit my friend Ali, who lives just outside of San Jose.  Here are some photos from my time there.  It was so fun to see some of the sights of the area and to see Ali’s life in action.  We finished the trip with a fun trip to Panama, which I’ll post about soon.
