Exams are just around the corner, and just about everything has become more interesting than reading an IB textbook- even cleaning my room is appealing!
Here are some of the adventures that I have been on, over the past few weeks:
This is a photo from project week approximately a month ago. I went alongside 20 other students to Hitoy Cerere national park- one of the least explored parks in Costa Rica. Here, we spent most of our volunteering hours maintaining trails that weaved throughout the forest. On our second day here, we went for a 2 hour hike up the river in this picture which eventually lead to beautiful, 40ft waterfall. It was one of the most pretty sights I had ever seen!
This is a photo of another hike that I went on, upon visiting Arenal Volcano 2 weeks ago, during Semana Santa- the national holiday!
We camped beside this lake, which was icy cold, but very refreshing to wash the dirt and sweat off after a hard day's hike!
Arenal Volcano towers above anything else in this picture, at almost 5500 feet high!
It was magnificent to see it, but even better to walk the trails which ran next to it!
In this picture, Hempitera larvae are closely grouped together, on Costa Rica's national tree- the Guanacaste tree. They are waiting for their wings to fully develop in the midday day sun in order to venture out into a world of mystery and endless possibilities.
