One of the best experiences from this trip was getting to visit a local high school and talk to the students in Spanish while they spoke to us in English. I was very nervous to do this at first because I didn’t know what we would have in common to talk about. However, the conversation was so easy, and I had so much fun learning about what they like to do in Costa Rica. They also loved to hear about what we have done in Costa Rica and what we do in America. I thought it was funny because they loved to talk about High School Musical, and they told us about their love for Troy Bolton (Zac Efron).
At the end of our visit we were all sad to leave and, the students were sad that we had to leave. Then we got a group picture and exchanged instagram usernames, and now I get to see and hear from them all the time. I am so thankful for that experience!
