In the morning students’ families helped them walk to our meeting point in San Joaquin de Flores. We boarded a public bus to downtown Heredia for a walking tour of the city. Our tour guide, Javier, showed us some of the important landmarks and talked about the history of the region. Students were given free time to explore the streets and then meet up for lunch in the central market.
Once back at CPI, students entered their Spanish classes. Students have classes from 1-5pm with a break in the middle for coffee along with bread and fresh pineapple and watermelon. After classes, students made their own way home to their houses to eat dinner with their families.
