I arrived in San Jose, Costa Rica on the 18th of September and have taken over 10,000 photographs during my time in Central America. It was certainly an intense and very full experience, and I’m still catching up with editing and sending the work to Raleigh.
I’m also still processing everything personally, but know I met some brilliant and inspiring people who I hope to be friends with for life. Returning home is bittersweet and emotional – having wanted to see my mum & friends whilst out there, I now miss so many wonderful people, some who live halfway across the world from me. But that’s just another good excuse to travel and visit them!
We lived at fielbase which was located in the University grounds of CATIE in Turrialba. Surrounded by dairy farms and sugar cane, we soon learnt to call this rustic place home.
