Costa Rica ’17: Day Four

By Andres Simbeck, 10th Grader, Menlo School

Day 4 started out with some delicious rice and beans and eggs for breakfast starting at 9 o’clock. We then proceeded to do a beach clean up where we found a lot of trash and even a puffer fish! Right after that amazing experience, we went straight into the warm water where we body surfed but also got smacked by the waves. We then came back to the hotel and had a break for a little bit.

Straight after that we took a bus to Carillo field where we met up with the Costa Rica National Lacrosse Team. It was very fun to be able to connect with these players from thousands of miles away and to see how eager they were to learn more about lacrosse. Our team played them first and then the girls team played a game. It was a great experience for them and for us.

We were supposed to have a beach BBQ with the Costa Rican team but it rained so we ended the day with a BBQ at the girls hotel. Finally we went back to our cozy beds and fell asleep (;.
