Some Photos from Our First Month of Service in Costa Rica

The following are a few pictures we've taken during our first few weeks in Costa Rica with some captions to explain the context.

This is a picture of a cricket that almost scared us to death our first week.  It was sitting right outside the entrance to our room.  We tended toward fear when encountering new "bichos" during our first few weeks here.  We're becoming a little more accustomed, but have found a little fear is probably a good thing.

I helped save this sloth with a co-worker as it was trying to cross a busy street which you can imagine is not a smart thing to do if you are not very fast.  Here's a picture of him happily climbing a tree from the ground after we took him there far away from the crowded road. 

We took a group of children to Cahuita National Park on a school trip and this boy wanted his picture taken.

This is definitely one of the most beautiful snakes I've seen - it's called an Oropel - which I wrote about in my first post which is poisonous, but is very docile unless provoked.  This one was located at Cahuita National Park.

This is a picture of some kids playing soccer on the beach during a sunset about 4 km from our site.
