Today was another big travel day for the group, this time by bus from La Fortuna to Montevede, a small town in the cloud forest. Heavy rains made the “normal” route inaccessible, meaning we got to take the scenic detour via the Pan-American highway. Weather has been rainy and was humid in La Fortuna; it is much cooler and windier here in Monteverde. The last couple days have been full of many exciting things: a visit to a volcano, swimming near a waterfall and at a hot springs, kayaking at Lake Arenal, a visit to a local elementary school, and more. We are all doing well and having a blast. Pura Vida!
