Workshops, Tamales, & Montezuma
I can't believe another week is over, and I have only one more left! This week we worked some more with the kids in Rio Azul. I've really been enjoying serving lunch and getting to know the kids better. We also went to the National Museum, ate some delicious Costa Rican tamales, and went to the playa de Montezuma on the Nicoya Peninsula. This weekend is the celebration of the annexation of the region of Guanacaste of which Montezuma is a part. The day after I leave is the celebration of the Patron Saint of Costa Rica, so I am planning a trip to Cartago this week to check out the pre-holiday festivities. I need to enjoy every fleeting minute I have here before my plane flies out next Sunday!
