After class, my Intercambio student, Carolina came to the school to say goodbye.
I was really touched by her making a special effort to visit me. She made me some Spanish music CDs in appreciation for the CDs I made for her.
Then I went to Jimmy's store and he drove me around town looking for a Bimbo shirt. He really wanted to help me find one. We visited several stores but could not find any but the authentic Bimbo soccer team shirt of the best team in Costa Rica. Bimbo is their sponsor and they wear a proud BIMBO across the front. However, I didn't want to spend $40 just for a laugh.
Then it was on to the house of one of the students. An American now living in Costa Rica. She invited several people over for a dinner party and it was really nice. Great food, nice people, and I got a free ride to the airport this morning. At least, I hope he shows up in a couple of hours. I have to leave for the airport at 3:30 a.m. for a 6:30 flight and one of the husbands of the guests is a taxi driver and he volunteered to come and pick me up and take me to the airport, a 30-minute drive. The Ticos are really nice people if you take the time to get to know them.
Right now, it is a little after midnight. There is no sense in going to bed. I have to get up in a couple of hours to shower and finish packing so I guess I'll just take a siesta and kill time until it is time to go. I hope the flight is on time and customs goes well.
Next stop - Wichita, Kansas
