Mike led us in song at our first meeting of the day. 

That put us in a wonderful mood for the orientation set up for us by Lori and day02pic08 Amanda. Amanda gave us a particularly inspiring talk on adapting and adjusting to a new culture.  She is clearly an expert at this job of taking willing souls and getting them readyday02pic09 for a new way of seeing and acting. Lori has been in Costa Rica for 3 years now so she had some in depth views to share. She made good use of locally available props, like Frank Marsh, to show us where we were in the country and were we would be going.

They are old friends of Amanda and are well known to many of us at MPPC.  Now it is time to go off to meet the families with which we will be placed.
