Location: Costa Rica

MapToday was one of those insane Costa Rican moments...
One of my good friends down here, Hannah, lives with a fairly prominent family and today for lunch, one of the Costa Rican presidential candidates, Ottón Solís, (the election is in February) came to her house for a little meet and greet. I went with her and we got to talk to the may be future president of Costa Rica! It was such a great experience because it was just his little group of 10 or so press people and the neighbors around her house and they just had a little intimate lunch and discussion session. Never would have happened in the States! This was the best part...he asked us what party we were affiliated with and we told him Democrat and he said ¨Good!¨. Love it!!
