Tour of San Jose

On Sunday we decided to have a day at the Parque del Este near our home stays. We met at our favorite ice cream parlor, Pops, and walked 3/4 of a mile to the park where the kids hung out by the pool, hiked the nature trails, played soccer, and relaxed for a couple hours. On Monday after classes we had a guided tour of San Jose where we learned some of the history of San Jose and walked though the mercado central which is a labyrinth of restaurants, tourist shops, food stalls, and medicinal herbalists. It's kind of like Pike Place market with Costa Rica flair. Here is a photo of the group with one of our chaperones, Andres, on our walking tour.
