Globe Aware
May 19, 2011


We just returned last week from our time in Costa Rica and I wanted to let you know how wonderful it was for our family. The week with Hilda, Mario and the other families was one of the best of our lives. The warmth we felt and the attachments that quickly built will stay with us forever. It is a magical place and we felt so privileged to be there helping out. I wanted to share a favourite memory we have as I think it captures the whole spirit of Globe Aware’s cultural mission. We were having dinner with Mario and Lourdes and their 2 daughters. Alejandra, the teenager was struggling with some French homework so my son who is a similar age helped her complete it with the help of our broken Spanish. We were all trying our best with 3 different languages and managed to get the job done with much laughter. Another favourite memory was at Ronald and Caro’s house playing guitars and singing together with their little girls.

Hilda was especially lovely and really did an excellent job of shepherding us around and teaching us Spanish and learning English. She is a wonderful and passionate ambassador for the Globe Aware program. If you ever need a reference written please do not hesitate to ask.
