Day 44— San Jose, Costa Rica, Language School

Last weekend all the students went to Panama for 3 days in order to renew our visas. This is a trip that happens roughly once every trimester is anxiously awaited by every student. Everyone gets all excited because we have no school or responsibilities all weekend. We don’t bring our homework and rarely venture away from the hotel pool.
