(Sun Jan 15th) This morning I woke up with the sudden urge to wear the monkey banana shirt I purchased as a souvenir from Dole’s plantation. Miraculously at breakfast the same species of monkey appear right in front of our window pane! I was so happy to bring my camera. He posed perfectly – he seemed to be a regular “customer” to the hotel as well. My boyfriend was able to feed him a banana.
In the evening I have my presentation on Marvin Rockwell, one of the few Quaker pioneers that created and founded the city Monte verde in Costa Rica. I nearly teared up when it was finally time to sit down with him in person. My professor was interested in using the video I took of him for our college. Super cool!
