Update from June 29


Today we went to the University of Costa Rica and learned about their disability service program. They have 158 students with disabilities on campus. I was very impressed with the accessibility on campus; nearly every building had a ramp. I was also impressed with how the support service seemed to want to support many types of students disabilities. They seemed very on top of things.

Later, my host family hosted a barbeque. I got to meet other host families and socialize. The things that really stand out for me is al the families' overwhelming warmth and hospitality. I love my Costa Rican host family. I will miss them very much when I leave. Tomorrow is my last day with them as we will be departing for Parque Nacional Carara. (I don't know if I'll have any internet access.)

My trip ends Thursday. I can't believe it's going so fast.
