A Great Time in Costa Rica

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

I spent three great weeks working in Costa Rica with engineers there. My job is to train Technical Support Engineers how to support the product we take care of, which is hardware and software storage systems from NetApp. The people I worked with are very talented and I had a great experience. I am grateful to them for the opportunity to work with them and hope we will get to work together more in the future. Hopefully I will also make it back to Costa Rica sometime. Their Trainer came to the US for a week and we worked through a class together there.

While in Costa Rica I got to know some other people there very well, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and value greatly the friendship we developed. Andrey was very generous with his time and provided me a way to get to church each week. The people in the Ward were very friendly and I enjoyed the meetings with them. Their temple is beautiful and I very much enjoyed the time I was able to spend there. I went to the Carara National Park not too far from San Jose one Saturday thanks to the kindness of a local tour operator. This was also a very unique and enjoyable experience.
