Study Abroad in Costa Rica, Part 1
With former U.N. Assistant Secretary General Robert Muller on the U.N. University for Peace campus.
Barbara Muller (left of center post) speaks to us about authentic, socially responsible living.
We spent two nights in the region of the active Volcano Arenal.
Tram cars take us up the mountain.
We begin by learning techniques for flying the high wires (some 2000 meters long at speeds up to 50 mph), slowing down, and hopefully, stopping.
Horseback riding near Arenal.
Occasionally we see monkeys in the treetops (center).
