Soccer! — or should we say Fútbol?


No, it’s not the World Cup, but it was quite an evening only three weeks ago now (it seems much longer ago than that), when GC students and Carazo host families joined a local soccer team in Diriamba for a series of brief matches that left us smiling, breathless and hungry. Organized and officiated by Alisa’a host dad, Rafael, the games were a big hit for those who played as well as those who cheered from the sidelines. Afterward we invited the Diriamba team and host family members to join us for a well-earned pizza dinner across from the central park in Diriamba. Enjoy these action shots!

(Note: We are on the road this week and next, visiting all 22 students at their service locations. We will begin posting reports of these visits soon.)
