The jungles of Costa Rica

Well, sorry it has taken so long to get going but we have been too busy having fun and getting to grips with the Central American ways!!! We arrived in San Jose now over a week ago to be greeted by prostitutes on the drive from the airport to the hostel! Nice! Was not all bad though as the...

Avocados

Yesterday I was hungry. It was before school and I hadn´t any food to make breakfast so I decided to stop in the market on my way to the bus stop for some local goods. Now, I´m not a picky guy so I decided to just eat the first thing I saw that looked good. Remember, I was hungry too. So I...

Thoughts

Nothing terribly unusual has happened in the week since I last posted so I will devote this post to a number of accumulating and perhaps entirely unrelated thoughts about my time in Nicaragua. 1. The buses. I take the public bus to and from school every day and therefore get to experience...

Long Weekend in Ometepe

We had a long weekend for the past 4 days as school was canceled on Friday and Monday due to Labor day which was over the weekend. (My school in particular had no classes today either because... 4 days wasn´t long enough?) For our time off, many of the volunteers decided to head to one of the...

Quuickly

Just got back from a long weekend on Ometepe Island in the middle of lake Nicaragua. I´ll write a full post perhaps tomorrow but for now I need to take a shower. And call my mother.

Its not the best system, but its our system

I´ve now completed two weeks of school down here in Granada and can mention some of my impressions. School here is quite unlike elementary school in the United States. All the five classrooms in my school have open doors that are connected by a courtyard area through which the kids are...
