Alex Douglas's Peace Corps Blog: Community Economic Development in Costa Rica
Tuesday, March 2, 2010
Greetings from Beautiful Costa Rica
Just arrived (and no daylight left to take a better picture!) We checked out of the hotel in DC at six this morning and spent most of the day in transit, but the night air in the hills above San Jose is perfect. It's a little humid, but right around 70 and smells of hydrangeas. We'll spend the next few days in orientation before we move in with our first host families and dig deeper into training. Everyone I've met so far--including 55 other volunteers--iskind, passionate, and collected.
You can't call me, but you can reach me by email (unmapped at gmail dot com) or snail mail:
Alex Douglas, PCT
Cuerpo de Paz
Apartado Postal 1266-1000
It'll take me a while to respond to either, but bit by bit I'll be in touch.
