Take a Walk on the Caribbean Side

A travel blog entry by moppet77


After a rowdy game of Jeopardy--I introduced the Final Jeopardy question this week and let the students bet how many ever points they wanted--Lauren, Caitlin and I said our sad good-byes to Kalpa and headed off to Puerto Viejo. After a long bus ride (they are always long bus rides), we arrived in Puerto Viejo. Immediately upon my arrival, I noticed …
