    Culture shock in San Jose

    I somewhat knew that coming into this I would experience some degree of culture shock. But new unfamiliar surroundings, in a foreign language (which I have to say I don't know, because everyone talks way too fast for me to even try to understand), where I stick out like a ghost in the dark, whilst suffering from sleep deprivation, is a bit more of a shock than I initially anticipated. As a result of this my ...

    ... all in the same river. We walked at our own pace without a guide and I thought it was going to be a hike through the forest... Nope, paved pathways for the most part. They had several gardens to check out: butterfly, hummingbird, frogs, snakes, monkeys, toucans, jungle cats....

    We will be coming home to our families so full, and so blessed, and so, so grateful for the gift of this time. ...

    ... lunch. Very different than school in the states. Tomorrow, I'm going to take a lot of pictures of the school so that you guys can get a better idea of where I've spent the past couple of days. After lunch, we had another class but I have no idea what the intention of the class was. They didn't do anything. The teacher doesn't teach and the students just talk or listen to music or play with their Rubik's cubes. We were in this class for 4 hours. THATS A LONG TIME. ...
