Dia de las culturas

Today was culture day here in Costa Rica - celebrating Christopher Columbus' 4th journey where he stepped foot in Costa Rica. Each class at Sojourn Academy and a few from the Spanish Language Academy set up a tables with items from different countries. A celebration was held in the gym which included dances, a "fashion" show of the different typical dresses of the various countries and Revelation 7:9&10 was read in 12 different languages. "After this I looked and there before me was a great nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. They cried out in a loud voice: "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne and to the lamb."

A walk around the garden

The owners of the house we rent have a beautiful garden. Following are a few photos:

Eric found something to work on - he is in his glory! (So is the owner - who is not mechanically inclined)
The neighbors cat jumps over the wall each morning to try to eat the doves that eat the crumbs we leave out for them.

This is a poinsettia plant that has been blooming since we arrived in early January.
