Year 3-2015–Day 2–Youth Led Workshops and Exploring Santa Ana
Our day started at 7:00 am with a variety of activities: soccer, running, and walking around Santa Ana. Our delicious breakfast included rice and beans, fried cheese, and bread. After breakfast, we split up into our watch groups and completed two workshops. The first one was systemic racism and the second one was identity and sustainability. Then we came back together and learned about Costa Rican culture from the Cloud Forest students.
Lunch consisted of fried fish, squash, potatoes, and cauliflower. Yum! After lunch, we split into watch groups again and went our separate ways. Half of us went to workshop on inter-cultural communication with Leila Mata Alvarez, a teacher from United World College, and the other half went on a scavenger hunt in Santa Ana. Some students got to play soccer with some local elementary school kids on our walk about in Santa Ana.
Dinner was a fiesta for our taste buds. We enjoyed spaghetti with red sauce or white sauce. Wow! We then moved on to more student led sessions, learning how to draw and how to design our own house. We ended the night with some lessons on Latin dance, salsa and merengue. Que Tuanis!
