Day 3. GVI works in collaboration with 3 schools in the area, Cocal, Damos and Paquita. Following a quick introduction, the 3 new volunteers under the guidance of Maria (GVI staff member) are off to do a spanish test followed by a visit to Cocal.

After that, lay on your stomach and float for 4 laps. (THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE) and after that, swim under ...
... and a doughnut for David, which was awesome. Maria chose a cheese pastry thing which was to her surprise tasted sweet.
A little further down the road we stopped by Rio Grande de Tarcoles for a bit of crocodile spotting from the bridge. It wasn't difficult either, there were loads of them and they were huge, even from a distance you could tell. There must have been around 20 spread between the river bank and slowly cruising on ...
