These four weeks in Costa Rica I will never forget. I had a life-changing time here visiting farms, volcanos, beaches, and rainforests and eating fantastic food. During my time in Costa Rica, I learned so much about the local agriculture and biodiversity found only within its borders. I can’t wait to take what I have learned here and apply it to what I learned back at my home institute. Also, I hope that everyone gets to enjoy all the animal photos I have captured while exploring this rich and diverse country. I learned a lot about myself through my passion for photography, and I know now that I want to continue a career taking photos of the biodiversity of the world. I am sad to leave Costa Rica, but I know I’ll be returning soon. Before I left, I had to get ice cream from my favorite, Pops. Believe me; if you ever get the chance to visit, you can not forget to get some great ice cream. Until next time Costa Rica, Pura Vida!
