Saying "Adios"

May 26th, 2009

Tri-Country boarded their planes and are currently enjoying a view of the Caribbean or Mexico from up above. Their feelings are mixed. While they are happy to see family and friends again (and to eat some food outside of rice, beans and chicken), they know they are going to miss the rainforest and the lifestyle it brought them. Regardless, they had an incredible 85 days here.

One student said yesterday:

"I am so happy to have come here... it's all I could've hoped for, and I wouldn't change it for anything."

Some of their take-aways from the experience? Appreciation for simple lifestyles. Ability and excitement to cook. Motivation to take on more responsibility. Appreciation for the outdoors. Being a better leader. SCUBA certifications. Happiness.
