Well last weekend we did, in fact, visit Volcan Irazu which has been inactive for almost 50 years but is still breathtaking! I'll post pictures when i get a chance. This week i started volunteering full time with an organization called Casa San Lazaro. Basically this is a Christian ministry that serves lunch to almost 300 children every weekday in a poor neighborhood near San Jose. They also provide tutoring, family workshops, and character development. This is a really cool opportunity to give back to the community, to learn firsthand about some of the social conditions in this country, and to practice my Spanish! So far it has been challenging, but i've been learning a lot too!
1) going to the barrio church on Sunday with my host dad and little brother
2) getting bitten by hormigas (ants)
3) playing futbol (soccer) with the kids today!
