I made it to Nicaragua safe and sound! Everything is very new and overwhelming and exciting. There is so much to take in and try and remember: bus routes, how to get to our house, Spanish words. It´s hot here! I´m guessing it is in the 80´s during the day. There is so much to write that I´m drawing a blank :) I´ll have to take time soon to write down some specifics and put up a new post. My new community mates are all incredibly welcoming and supportive. It has been a relatively smooth transition thus far. We have busy weeks ahead of us, filled with homestays with different families, orientation, community bonding, and eventually language school. I don´t start my work placement at the school until the end of January but it sounds like I will stay busy and possibly get to do some day trips! I am looking forward to many new adventures!
Thank you all for your continuous prayers and support and I will try to update more soon!
Lots of love from this warm country.
