Welcome to our journey!!!
We are 16 students from all over the United States that decide to skip the winter and join the program Tropical Ecology and Conservation.
Well besides the beach, sloths, pumas, waterfalls, monkeys; we came to understand how tropical ecosystems works(did a mention beach?)...And here we are!
(This is people is not weird,not..not at all..well a little bit!)
-Here we are:
At the top of the picture, left to right:
Patrick from Puget Sound(also call by the staff as Patricio)
Emma D also from Puget Sound(promise she's happy in Costa Rica!)
Cristina from Oregon State University(not sure if she's doing yoga poses at the picture or is just that she love the tree!)
Megan from University of Wisconsin Madison(we are pretty sure she's trying to communicate with some howler monkeys..nice try Megan!)
-At the bottom of the picture, left to right...
Kay from Pomona College(looking a little bit confused by her crazy classmates)
Melissa from University of Minnesota(We wonder what's she looking?)
Andrea from University of Wisconsin Madison
Deborah from Purdue University(Andrea and Deb didn't agree how to pose for the pic)
....Behind Andrea and Deb
Grace from University of Minnesota( we told her that we would have pizza lunch, she got super excited!)
Emma O from Colorado Boulder giving her biggest smile!
Emily from Ramapo College of New Jersey(ok Em...we love you but that's rude)
Colleen from University of Pittsburgh

Cali from Bucknell University doing the classic bunny ears to Jeff.
Kathryn from Eckerd College(joining Em in the tongue out display)
We got to Costa Rica straight to the city...How's San Jose?Are Costa Rican's fruits as good as we imagine? How easy is to convince a costa rican to give us their time for an interview in the middle of a busy city?
Figure it out in our next post!
