Lost in Heredia

6 Sep

I’ve been here for less than a week, but it feels like so much longer. Everything’s going great, and I’m settling into life in Costa Rica.  I wandered around town on Sunday with Laura, another Sol student.  We let ourselves get lost in Heredia and ended up wandering around a beautiful cemetery before finally heading back to the center of town for fresh coconut milk and empanadas.

Classes at la Universidad Latina started Monday.  I absolutely love my Spanish class.  It’s just six students and a great professor.  I’ve only been to one of my other classes thus far: Ecología y Medio Ambiente.  I’m a little out of my depth there; the amount of Spanish was a little overwhelming.  I understood the main points, but a good sixty percent of the details went over my head.  I might have to give up one of my classes with locals in favor of something less intense.

Other than that, it’s been pretty calm here.  I’ve just been hanging out with my host family (more on them later), playing with their kids, hanging out with the other Sol students.  We leave Friday for Manuel Antonio, our first weekend excursion.  I’m super excited!
