Pura Vida! Our Costa Rica Experience

jim

Recently, the first week of school actually (August 23-30), the two of us traveled to the beautiful country of Costa Rica at the invitation of FundaciĆ³n CIENTEC to present several technology sessions at their 13th Avo Congreso Nacional de Ciencia Tecnologia Y Sociedad in Puntarenas (on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica). While neither of us knew much Spanish, we met some incredible people who gave us some great adventures.

We especially want to thank Estrella Burgos, Marteen Bonfil, and Alejandra Leon-Castella (who still does not have a Facebook account)! From presenting sessions via translators and eating octopus pizza to hiking through the rainforest and having sunset dinners, we had the time of our lives. Here’s just a small sample:
