Patch Adams in Town

So I was walking down the street in San Jose when I saw four clowns walking in my direction. I started photographing them and they invited me to follow them around as they visited children’s hospitals. They escorted me to a bus filled with 37 more clowns. I was then told the whole story about how they were here volunteering with Patch Adams’s Non profit. I then met Patch Adams the following day and photographed him as he clowned around La Carpio, a Nicaraguan refugee community. Hanging out with the clowns for two days was probably the most overwhelming thing I have done in Costa Rica. Songs like “The clowns on the bus go around and around” continued playing in my head hours after I arrived home.
