    Today, Good Friday and a very Catholic people, we stopped in a few small towns along the way where they had a procession carrying a tall statue of Jesus. (I think in Canada, believers carry a large wooden cross). Absolutely no sign of the Easter bunny though!

    ... and wonderful leaders and staff it is hard not be excited to get up and get going. With all that there has been some struggles in terms of the language barriers between us and our Costa Rican counter parts, but luckily for me, my fellow leader Diana speaks fluent English and has really helped me translate as well as learn the Spanish language.
