Hello friends and family! I am writing this “journal” entry about six weeks before I leave for Costa Rica. I just received news of my host family and I want to share with you! 

I will be staying in Puriscal, Costa Rica, which is about an hour from San Jose, with a family of five. I will have an eleven-year-old brother, a thirteen-year-old sister and a sixteen-year-old sister! My family lives in a poor neighborhood in the middle of this small town. Each week they take a trip to their farm and harvest lemons, cut grass and swim in a little pool. I have limited information on them so far, but as I get know my host family more, I will post more information! The photo below is of the younger girl and my host father!Image
