Friends, family, and GG community,

We have arrived safely and are already enjoying the beauty and culture of Estelí! Although our red-eye flight took away a bit of our energy, we were rejuvenated upon our arrival and exploration of our new home for the next 3 weeks.  Today we: left San Francisco, ate breakfast above México, arrived in San Salvador, took a bus through Managua, wound through the lush, verdant countryside, and arrived at our hostel in Estelí.  We had a few group meetings that produced great ideas, appreciation, and cultural conversations (of which there will be a great deal more).  We are already becoming a family, and you can just feel the positive vibes all around! This is a wonderful group of Glimpsers.  Your leaders could not be more impressed and eager with the journey here and Day 1!


We enjoyed Nicaraguan fare at Buffet Estelí, which will be our awesome comedor for our trip.  We enjoyed gallo pinto, plátanos, verduras, y fresco de piña. ¡Qué rico! 

¡Hasta mañana! 🙂

– Your GGLs Lauren & Kenyatta
