Aero: Meghan Kelly – Costa Rica 2013 – Food and Dining Food and dining in Costa Rica was very different from what I am used to in the United States. I was fortunate to try many different foods that we aren’t accustomed to in the US. I was very nervous about this aspect of studying […]

Aero: Alyssa Davis – Costa Rica 2013 – Food and Dining As a lover of all things edible, I’ve found that it is absolutely necessary to test the fortitude of your taste buds directly through consumption as often as possible.  It is important, especially when travelling abroad, to eat like the locals do.
