Goodbye to host families, off to the airport

The university of Costa Rica was cool.  Unsurprisingly the kids were hungry after the tour though. We walked over to the mall San Pedro for lunch in the food court.  Then I went to get money sent to us from the school's go fund me account.  I traveling with one of the boys to get the money from western union while the other chaperone's took the boys to CRLA to print our boarding passes for our return flight home. 
Once we had the money and all the boarding passes we went back to the mall to buy ourselves Pura Vida shirts and to buy gifts for our host mothers.  All the boys LOVED their host mothers.  I allowed them to vote of how the $200 of he go find me account would be used and that was their decision.  So all the moms got teddy bears that said "te amo" ( I love you) and we all got shirts that say Pura vida, costa Rica's national slogan.

Once we were done gift shopping we got on the bus to go home for dinner and to spend our last few hours with our host families.  The buses came to get us at 10pm
