This is a guest post by Gwendolyn Hudson. Hudson was the winner of AARP's 2010 Create the Good raffle for a one week volunteer program in Costa Rica through Cross Cultural Solutions. She volunteered in a home for 30 children cared for by the foster parents, Doña Melba and Don Victor. In addition to her volunteer work, she visited local attractions such as the Irazu volcano. She also learned local dance, cooking, and was even able to learn some Spanish, which she has continued to study upon returning home.
