Friday marks a week since I arrived in San Ramón, Costa Rica!This country has so many adventures to offer, and I cannot wait to get started with my first big adventure to Fiestas Palmares this weekend. There will be a concert, a fireworks show and amazing Costa Rican food. Before I met my host family, I expected to be speaking a form of Spanglish to them at the beginning of my trip and hopefully improving throughout the next four months. But I was way wrong – turns out my host family does not speak any English! This has been extremely helpful in my mission to become fluent in Spanish. My classes are already challenging but still very interesting. Having the opportunity to attend classes in such a beautiful place is something I could not pass up. I am so excited to see what the next four months have in store for me after living here for only one week. ¡Pura vida!
