Costa Rica: Day 1 (Coffee Production, etc.)

On Day 1 (the so-called "rest day"):

- A great visit to a coffee plantation with a behind-the-scenes tour. Fascinating to learn about everything from the science and economics of coffee production to migrant labor issues to the different varieties of coffee.  And, of course, some great samples. Thanks to our guide, Jose, and Espíritu Santo Coffee Tour.

- In the afternoon, we had a fantastic walking tour of San Jose (Thanks, Jeff). 

Next up:  Day 2 (Monday) -- Social innovation and children's rights.
