When you think of a twelve day trip with the same eleven people, you imagine you will go crazy and become frustrated very easily; however, if you are with the right people who have the right attitudes, then the trip will be pleasant and enjoyable for everybody. There are eight students along with three professors on this trip. The professors on this trip are Rachel Chrane, Katherine Logan, and Trudy Morlino. I can honestly say without a doubt, that these were the perfect professors to come! They work so well together! Every time one of us wants to go do an activity, they work together to find the best price, and try to include everybody. For example, one day half the group wanted to go see the prison. Katherine Logan went around asking everybody if they wanted to go, and everybody decided to go except two people. They had the choice which doesn’t happen much when a large group goes on a trip. It is normally the majority wins, but this team of professors does its best to grant everybody’s wishes.
The jail was an experience that was fascinating and I believe everybody enjoyed it. We all had questions, and since not all of us are as experienced in speaking Spanish as Ms. Chrane, we asked her the questions, and she would ask the guard or security officer for us. We had so many, but she did fantastic translating for us. They have done so much already on this trip, and we still have another 5 days here. I would love to come to Escuela Del Mundo again, ONLY if these professors were coming as well. They are the perfect trio and are a blast to hang out with. Class in Costa Rica, and nightly group classes in the pool? I think that will grab everybody’s attention who is contemplating a trip to Costa Rica. PURA VIDA
