We woke up unusually early today! A 5:21 start to the day to make it down to the Cabecar Indigenous area. We packed into the bus with drowsy souls and PB & J sandwiches. We slept all the way to a local spot called Los Primos where we were bombarded with a smorgasbord of local cuisine. After giving ourselves an unofficial tour of a banana plantation we arrived at the Cabecar Indigenous zone. The women of the tribe gave us presentations of their traditional crafts. It was mind blowing to observe! They could turn raw materials from the jungles into beautiful and practical crafts. We then replicated a trek the local families do on a daily basis and were extremely humbled by the experience. After dinner we built a bond fire along side the river. Around the fire we had an open and honest discussion that allowed us to learn more about everyone.
