Settled In

At this point, I finally feel like I accustomed to the culture and I feel like a part of the community. It's a nice feeling :]
I'm a little sad that I will Thanksgiving with my family this week, but the school is having a Thanksgiving-type lunch on Thursday and we get half of the day off which is great.
Over the past week I've gone hiking a few times and have gotten to see many different views of the mountains and the Gulf of Nicoya. It's so absolutely beautiful here! If I lived here, I don't think I'd ever get tired of it.

I've also seen more interesting animals, like this butterfly. I couldn't get a good picture of it's wings, they were bright blue on the inside.

Also, I saw a group of Coati's on one of the trails. There were at least 30 of them, it was wild! Apparently the mothers travel in packs with the babies.

Tree climbing is fun too, though it's no comparison to rock climbing!

Finally, this picture shows a plant called King Grace Grass. Obviously, I had to get a picture with it!
