Our day started at our favorite restaurant, El Comedor, where Don Carlos made us some delicious omelets. After breakfast we come back to our hostel and receive an educational seminar about culture from our Global Glimpse Leaders. Then we traveled to San Juan de Oriente to Don José ‘s pottery shop and we learned how to make the pottery and also painted some already made vases. We traveled back to Granada and on the bus ride back we were struggling to find an American radio station but we eventually found one. It was time for lunch and we had Vigoron, which has yucca, pork rinds, and cabbage. We had planned two other activities for the rest of the day but sadly they were cancelled but the group still had such a positive attitude and stayed flexible. So instead of our two activities we walked through the city of Granada and walked down to the shore of Lake Nicaragua, which was so beautiful.
My favorite part of the day was seeing how the group reacted so well to the change, and the change wasn’t a bad thing at all. Seeing the city of Granada was so exciting, even though the walking wasn’t really fun the sights were amazing. Also, painting the pottery was so fun (I didn’t have fun sculpting because my skin got scrapped off by the wheel -__-) , it was also nice to see how Don José uses his love of art to connect with his culture.
