Later that day we went back to El Polideportiva, which is the park with a track, for our cross country workout. It was cool seeing all the locals playing soccer, basketball, and selling various items at a market. From there we went to lunch at Frescas. We are thinking of going back tonight to try out some of their milkshakes. It is a blast getting to try all the new foods and flavors that are here in Costa Rica. We are very proud of everyone on our team for being brave and branching out to try these new foods. A favorite snack of the team has become "hairy cherries", a small red (and hairy ) fruit that has a gooey white inside.
Another treat we had today was a visit from a missionary family that are on their way to Mexico to work in Mexico City. Their story of faith was inspiring to us all and they encouraged us to use our majors we have been studying and see how God can use us in special ways. It was such a blessing to meet them and their kids. We look forward to tomorrow to go to a church service.
