Day 5

Postby jamesfc on Fri Mar 19, 2010 11:25 pm

Last evening I was set up to photograph birds in the area of our motel, and we noticed toucans flying nearby, but too far to get some good photos. I joked to Carolyn that I needed on to land in the tree next to me, and one did! Fortunately I was prepared and took some great shots of the collared aracari before he (she?) flew off.

Of course, Costa Rica is a perfect place to photograph tropical birds!

But our goal today was to visit a school in a remote cabécar village which has never been visited by outsiders before. We spent some time talking to the childrend and gave them an english lesson. Later, we watched them play with the soccer balls and frisbees we brought with us for the school.

It was not an easy place to get to. We weren't able to get through with the 4x4, so we had to hike a steep, muddy and slippery road to reach the school. The children often walk up to an hour to arrive at this school each day!

Hey James you think good that you were visiting to school that was never visit by outsider as you say. According to me children were very happy by you as I see in the photo that you appear.

Yes, it was quite an honor - and I should mention that people within Costa Rica frequently visit the village, but we were the first outside of Costa RIca to visit!
