Our Costa Rican travelers are continuing to settle into their host community, and are cruising along in their service project, which is to contribute to expanding the community’s casa comunal. The casa comunal is used in community events, meetings, festivals and more! It was the site of our welcome party, and will likely be where we say goodbye, too! All that to say that it plays a critical role in the dynamic of our host community, and our travelers are thrilled to be playing a role in beautifying and expanding it!
Take a look below at some updates from the worksite, some fun anecdotes, and a few more updates from birthday girl, Rocio!
Sohee loves to bake; when she found out her host mom is a baker and has her own mini bakery at the house, Sohee was thrilled. Twice a week her host mom, Enil, wakes up at 4 am to start baking. One morning Sohee got up bright and early to bake with her, learning how to make traditional Costa Rican bread!
