Hola Amigos!!

We arrived safely in Nicaragua this morning after a wonderful flight from SFO.  It was great meeting all the families in San Francisco before our flight!

Upon our arrival, we met Margarita and Heysell, our in-country guides who escorted us to our bus and a three hour ride to Esteli. We saw beautiful green forests, rolling hills, cattle, men on horseback, and many people going about their everyday business.  The weather is a little warmer here and we drank lots of water!!

On our arrival in Esteli we had a tasty chicken lunch with plantains!!  We had an orientation to the hostel and we put our money, passports and electronics away for safekeeping.  The students make phone calls home to parents.  We hope you heard from them today!

We had Nicaraguan enchiladas for dinner.  They were so good that we requested them again.  Tomorrow we will learn about the history and politics of Nicaragua and have a tour of the city.

Buenas noches!!
