About a week ago it was announced that Obama would be coming to visit Costa Rica. Last weekend helicopters began to circle planning out the routes he would take and making sure everything was secure. Because our school is so close to the airport and all of the roads within a certain radius were blocked off, classes were cancelled. James and I took the opportunity to take a day trip up to Volcán Irazú. It was beautiful. We are blessed to live in a place where such amazing things are only an hour’s drive away.
