Hola!!! Como estas? It’s the 20th of July and unfortunately we have already reached the halftime of the programme. Nevertheless we are having a really good time. The day started with the CSR-course where we learned about responsible marketing and the sustainable way how Costa Rica deals with tourism, which is their number one income.

The Spanish course was very different to the other days because we visited “Mercado Central” which is in San Jose downtown. “Mercado Central” is a big indoor market which is well visited by Ticos and tourists. For me, as a European, it was impressive how much different kind of fruits, vegetables and herbs you can buy. Papayas, Pineapples, Maracuyas, Mangos, Kiwis, Bananas and many more fruits opens up the heart of everyone who loves tropic, colourful and sweets fruits. So for sure it opened up my heart!

A few of us have spent the evening in a Lebanese Restaurant which changed to a discothèque at night. Electronic music and nice people guarantied a really nice ending of this intense day. I’m looking forward to the dancing class tomorrow. I hope we can improve our Salsa and Merengue skills.

Raggeaton and Rock’n’Roll!
