Our learning adventure in Costa Rica began with all students arriving early this morning and catching a bus across town to the hotel that we're calling home for the next few days. After introductions and some orientation sessions, we enjoyed lunch in our open- air classroom on the roof of the hotel (view out towards the city pictured above). After lunch we enjoyed (yes, enjoyed!) a statistics lesson delivered by Dr. Diana Lieberman -- getting some practice in anticipation of collecting data in many settings this coming month. In the evening we went out on the town in small groups to local restaurants -- a good start!
