Earlier during orientation, we met students from Kalamazoo, Michigan who are also in the ICDS program. They've been here for a good couple of months now and it was a friday so Amber, Katie (my fellow Drexel Dragons), and I seized this opportunity to exchange numbers with the Kalamazoos.
We ended up going to an Irish pub our first night on the town in Costa Rica (oddly enough) called Cric. The best ...
