Volcan Irazu — Volcano #2 since I arrived
A holiday from classes meant a trip to nearby Volcan Irazu. We have had 3 earthquakes and a volcanic eruption since I arrived but this trip seemed like a safe bet as this volcano has been dormant for quite a while. And it paid off with great views, a drive by a community that celebrates its name — The Heart of Jesus (see statue) — and mini stories unfolding all around us.
I posted several photos (click link to see all) on the return trip to San Jose. I wound up sitting by a German woman who I met inside the crater. She’s here for her Master’s thesis on the smell of papayas…. Yes, what you just read is true.
Started in Tennessee, spent time in Alabama and made way to Costa Rica after 20 years in Texas. I've focused on communications professionally in the worlds of church, government and nonprofits. Now I'm feeding my longtime love of volunteering as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Costa Rica.
Just in case you don't know me very well ... The contents of this website are mine personally and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps.
