(Sunday, December 30) This is from Colleen Mitchell posting from home tonight:
The kids were headed to bed after a lovely evening that I’ll let them update you on tomorrow. But I wanted to quickly share this complimentary e-mail that we received from the hotel where we stayed on the group’s first night here. A credit to these kids and their parents:
This is Paul, over at the Hotel Reventazon. I just wanted to thank you for coming to visit. Your group treated me and my facility with courtesy and respect, something that doesn’t happen too often around here. I really appreciate that you left my kitchen cleaner than how you found it. I wish that all large groups would be as courteous. I hope that your trip to La Colonial was educational and fruitful. I wish you success on your mission, and invite you to come back any time.
