BEST and San Benedict friendship games (basketball): http://youtu.be/r_GU5ZOKED8
Immediately after our friendship games we had a surprise birthday party for one of the BEST boys. It's been planning it for a while with one of the coordinators from CRLA. One the teachers and students at San Benedict heard that he would turn 18 while visiting their country they insisted on celebrating with us at their school. While he was playing basketball in the gym we set up in the cafeteria area. He was pleasantly surprised to see we thought of him. I think he thought that we'd forgotten about him! Never that! I'd been planning his party, but the boys in our group would never let me forget about their friend!

After eating cake and celebrating theSan Benedict kids had to go back to class and we had to go back to CRLA for our graduation ceremony and University of Costa Rica tour. Before leaving though, it was time for pictures with friends!
