I had the chance to teach Spanish to a group of university students over nine weeks this summer in San José, Costa Rica. We learned vocabulary and how to communicate in Spanish, and also some interesting aspects of Latin American and Costa Rican culture. As a humanitarian photographer, I am always looking for ways to show cultures in a positive light. It is hard not to appreciate the physical beauty of the country (the green, lush landscapes, the incredible wildlife, bright colors, biodiversity etc.), but I consider even more remarkable the warmth and kindness of the Costa Rican people. ¡Pura vida! Here are a few of my favorite photos from the summer of 2013:
