While in Panama, I met up with Judson friends, Marc and Amy Shuflin, who are currently teaching in Caracas, Venezuela. We were able to catch up and trade notes on our schools before Trish and I took an 8pm bus from the city to the beach. Here we are at Albrook Mall... complete with a carousel!
And then when we got back to Costa Rica, another Judson friend, Jenny, contacted me and said she was still in the country after an unplanned robbery. The burglars got everything, including her passport. So she was here in San José for a few more days than she planned, but I was glad to see her! She and a friend, Kristin, were able to spend the night with us here in our apartment. On Tuesday morning, she flew back to Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where she is also teaching 4th grade. Here we are after Pilates class... sweaty and tired.
