Kenzie states "I chose this photo of the volcano because it was my favorite day! I loved hiking up to the top to get a great view of the volcano and of the lake on the opposite side. It was fun how when we were coming down we got poured on and then went straight to an amazing lunch! (: "

Chris liked this photo because it shows an aspect of life that he never saw before. "Cultural dancing does not exist as much in America as it does in Costa Rica. The people there learn three dances by the time they are in sixth grade, and all of those dances are culture specific. I thought that was very cool to see".

Allie says: "This is my favorite photo because whenever we exited the bus to enter into Panama, Nacho told us we should not talk to the children on the streets because once you give them money many other people will swarm over to you. When these two children approached us I was prepared to tell them no. Then they looked up at us with their sad little brown eyes and questioned us: "agua limpio?" (clean water) and my heart melted. I gave them my water and they lit up right before me and drank most of my water. It really changed me and I love sharing this story. They opened my eyes to the poverty of this town and made me want to bless even more children!"

Haylee says "This picture summed up the trip for me. The way the trees and land reflect off the water and the smoothness of that water gave me a sense of calm on that morning. The boats were cool because they look all vintage-y. This picture gives me fond memories. It was really hard to choose a favorite picture because this trip was full of good memories."
Cam says "this is my favorite picture because it really shows how big and colorful a blue morphil Butterfly is. The owner of the butterfly farm, William, is holding it but then let it go free after everyone had looked closely at it."
Logan says: "this picture, captured on the volcano overlooking Lake Arenal, is my favorite out of all the pictures I took. I think the picture captures the landscape of Costa Rica: mountainous, green, and overall beautiful. This was my favorite view of the entire trip, and I was glad to capture it with my amateur photography skills."
