Our first full day in Costa Rica has been a great one! After breakfast we did a jungle hike with our naturalist guides, Jaime and William. We spotted capuchin monkeys high in the forest canopy, several different frogs, and also the dreaded bullet ants. Our guides were outstanding and the students all seemed to enjoy learning about the different animals and plants in the local ecosystem.
We took a short break for a swim in the Sarapiquí river, had some lunch, and then went to a canopy zipline, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.
After dinner and some activities, our World Leadership School instructors, Randall and Walter, challenged the kids to list their concerns and expectations about this week, and then come up with norms that would help us meet those expectations. The group really embraced this exercise so we wanted to share the results with you.
Spirits are high and everyone is really looking forward to tomorrow. We've added a few pics from today below.
