Location: La Carpio

Waking up from the dreams of continuing our trip, we went on with our work in La Carpio. What made today extremely special and exciting was that it was a student led day! We had decided to sell some of our stuff to raise money for the community as well as help some home construction work yesterday. The construction group were diligent and efficient as usual. However, the selling group were having a little more difficulty because there weren’t many people coming to buy anything. To fix that problem, we started to be models for the clothes we were selling! It helped a bit, and we earned more than 60 dollars throughout the day. In the evening, we followed the local crowd to La Bacilica de Los Angeles, one of the most famous churches in Costa Rica. After enjoying the view and beautiful music, we started our way back to our families, looking forward to our last big dinner with them.
