After a tremendously successful experience last year, I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to bring another group this year. There was quite a bit of rigmarole to deal with in setting things up this year, from both student and administrative ends. But we made it happen... huge thanks to Marge Arnold and David Goldenberg for making this possible. All said and done, we now have a somewhat smaller group this year, but it should be no less fun.
Our trip runs from May 31-June 10, and we'll be visiting various areas around Costa Rica. As always, stay tuned here to hear about our adventures. Personally, I can't wait to get back, visit old friends, re-explore my old stomping grounds, and introduce another crop of students to one of my favorite places on earth. Only 27 days to go!
