"The trip truly stands out as the best 4 weeks of my life. I know the friendships I formed with the host family and my internship hosts, not to mention those with other locals whom I simply met along the way, will last forever. That said, it's the people and community I appreciated most ... not just the monkeys and scarlet macaws flying overhead. I don't just want to return one day, I have to! Gracias por todo El Ceibo. Pura vida por siempre esta en mi corazon."
