Somoto Canyon

Estelí E1AHello to all glimpsers, friends, and family! I am John, and I had the honor of being Group E1A’s Èl lider del dial for Fun Day. We kicked off our day with a 6 a.m. breakfast, followed by an hour-long trip north to Somoto, a town near the Nicaragua-Honduras border. After gathering and preparing the necessary supplies we drove to our destination, and after a 30-minute hike, arrived at the beautiful Somoto Canyon. There we embarked on a two hour-trek through the canyon, and the river that flows through it. We did many enjoyable things here, some of which included traversing through rapids, jumping off rocks into the river below, riding small boats, appreciating the nice view of the canyon, and even creating a group circle in the middle of the river! None of this would have been possible without the help of our local guides and firefighters, who watched out for us the entire time. Everyone in the group would agree that today is a day that will never leave our memories, as we prepare to start our CAP project!

In addition to Fun Day, today is also Father’s Day! Below are some messages from E1A’s Glimpsers:
