Costa Rica Pre-Trip Shannanigans! August 21, 2011

Filed under: Faerie Dust & Whimsy — Faerie Magic @ 5:23 pm

Hi all!   The SDFDC (Sonoran Desert Faerie Dust Clan), the Muppet Gang and myself are preparing for out adventure to Costa Rica.  The program is called “Clowning and Caring in Costa Rica”.  It is with the Geshundeit Institute! with Patch Adams.

The two muppets in the crew that are joining me are Gonzo, we all figured his big nose would lend to some good laughter, and Fozie Bear, well because he is the comedian of the muppet gang.  As he always says, “Waka waka waka” …

As you can see, Gonzo is so excited about the adventure that he was practicing putting on his hot pink clown nose and well Fozzie Bear already has a hot pink nose permanently!    Because there is some rain this time of year in Costa Rica we found a super fabulous awesome umbrella who is a cute ladybug to tag along on the journey!

  During our journey with the group, we get the opportunity to visit clinics and hospitals around Costa Rica.  Our friend, Quynn, who knows that I have a giraffe hand puppet to take with me found a giraffe outfit for us to sport when having fun with the youngsters.  Belle from the SDFDC said, “Shannon, Shannon put on the outfit and show everyone.”   …

My partner in Clown crime, Gonzo, is donning his clown nose as well, unfortunately we were unable to find one smaller so that his whole head disappears when he wears it!   We will be staying at a hostel called “Backpackers in Costa Rica” for our lodging with the group.  Melanie, the coordinator, sent us our itinerary yesterday.  We will be visiting a barrio, a hospital clinic, a rehab hospital and a children’s hospital to name just a few places in our journey.

Waka-waka-waka …..
