Location: La Carpio and Cartago

After staying at our homestays for the first night, we went to La Carpio to play with kids in the Montessori school that Gail started. They were very happy and very excited to play with us. Then we left La Carpio to go to the Basilica where millions of Costa Ricans were making the pilgrimage for their religious holiday. We had to walk in for an hour to get there, while some of the other people had been walking for ten days. We made it to the Basilica and explored it a little. Then we went back to our homestays and had a much-needed dinner and went to sleep.
