Guanacastillo, Nindiri

I found out today that my plane leaves at 6am this Sunday. I am going to try to only take a backpack full of stuff. I will be in Nicaragua but more specifically Guanacastillo, Nindiri. If you look on a map it looks really close to water. I hope we get to go see the water. I am taking my suit just in case. I am really looking forward to the trip. You can get more info/see pictures on this myspace page. I also copied three of the images for the blog. Alex, you wanted more info but I actually do not know much. We will be traveling on Sunday, working Mon-Friday and traveling back on Saturday. We will be eating and sleeping right with the village. We get to go out to eat two nights. I was told to bring bug spray and a mosquito net. We will be taking bucket showers and we will use a latrine. (this information caused two girl students to drop out today). I will definitely be taking my camera and possibly the video camera also. Kristen B! What are you doing in Honduras? That is cool we will be in both CA's at the same time! Hope to see you in one of them.

Our goal at a group of 23 is to build to houses in 5 days.




One of the two buildings we will be sleeping in.

Another group of workers. The weather is going to be nice and warm. It will be nice to get back to some warm weather for a week.
