Hey, everybody. Alan, Boramee, Josh, Sara, and Sukhi here. It's been a while since our last update, so I'll share a few more things than I originally planned. Here we go...
Saturday we arrived in San Jose, CR. The area is much more developed than Limon, Nicaragua, where we were previously. The city is much bigger than say, Lansing, Michigan, and it has all the amenities of a big city, like good public transit, city tours, plenty of restaurants, etc.
We are each staying with host families in nearby Santa Ana. The hospitality of the people here is incredible and living with a family has been a great way to immerse ourselves in the culture here.
On Sunday, along with my host mom, we toured around the city, using a "train" that goes around the city.
Monday, we arrived at the clinic.
Tuesday, we worked in the clinic and attended Spanish class in San Jose. Here, we receive 4 hours of Spanish class each week.
Today at clinic we prepared for our first charla, which we will give tomorrow. It's going to be great. More in our next update.
Also in the next update, Dr. Schnuth introduces us to the clinic.
