Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings
A big welcome and thanks to volunteers Martie Stothoff and Matt George. Martie will be volunteering here until December, and Matt is a fourth-year vet student who is here for a month. Martie is from the U.S. city of Amherst, Massachussetts, and Matt is in his last year of veterinary medicine at Western University in Pomona, California.
It is one of the best vet schools and our community is lucky to have him. Matt is very smart and independent and managed to get from his flight to Quepos on his own, then walked the last five miles through the Palms with his luggage in the rain.
He made it safely in record time. We are thrilled that Martie and Matt are both here helping the community.
