I enjoyed every day so much that i do not want to leave my new friends so abruptly, but my flight is booked and i am going to take it. After saying goodbye to my beloved host family, i meet Johannes, Anna and David at the airport. We had the first flight together. In Newark our ways finally parted.

Being alone for some hours I started reminding every moment of the previous month in my head, realizing how happy i am having had the opportunity to take part in this program. If you are still thinking about taking part, my dear reader, stop doing so. Thinking doesn’t make you feel – so go out feel the culture of Costa Rica, feel the wind over the costs, hear the nature and laugh with your new friends.
