Kayaking and Capstone Presentations
I woke up this morning feeling totally refreshed. Having gone to bed earlier than usual the night before, it was nice to wake up knowing that I had gotten a few precrious extra hours of sleep. Especially knowing the day ahead would be devoted to preparing for our captsone presentations. Breakfast was at eight and consisted of: rice and beans, scrambled eggs, and buttered toast. It also cane with juice and coffee, as usual. I don’t think I could ever get sick of the coffee down here. It’s out of this world. After breakfast, a bunch of us walked down to the lake, where several kayaks had been left out for us. Some of us doubled up, some of us ventured out solo, and we all rowed out to the other side of the lake. The morning sky was clear and the breeze cool as we paddled across the smooth surface of the water. We were only out on the lake for a little while, but it was nice to get out and do something on our own for a while and it was fun trying to figure out how to get the boat to move in the direction we wanted.
Following that, a lot of us took some time to relax by the pool to get some sun and then met up with our respective groups to piece together and organize our capstone presentations. Ours had a bit of work left to be done, but we put our heads together and managed to get it together in time for the presentation. And it came out pretty well! I definitely felt nervous going into our presentation, but the atmosphere, despite being formal, felt relaxed because we were presenting to fellow students on the trip as well as our Green leaders; all people we have gotten to know over the course of the trip. Everyone did such a great job on their projects and it was really interesting to see what the other groups came up with. After the presentations, we all headed down for dinner (rice and shrimp!). Tomorrow morning we leave this hotel and move on to our final destination: Tamarindo.
