¡Pura Vida en Costa Rica!

 We have seen the real Costa Rica - at least for a short while.  Over the course of two evenings, we stayed in the small mountain-coffee-farming town of Santa Cruz just outside San Isidro De El General. 

 Our friend Corry, who has done several service projects in the town over the years, connected us with a wonderful family there.  We ate, slept,and lived  the Costa Rican lifestyle while stumbling our way through conversation - our brains are exausted. 

Most families in the area are part of a coffee growing cooperative - they are proud to say their coffee is exported to 26 countries.

A coffee tree!

We were sent off with full bellies and happy hearts
