Today, we were led on a tour of Matagalpa by Norman and Asha.  Some cool sites (like the Cathedral and the central square), murals, and a good idea of what is where.  All in all, another successful day.  The glimpsers are all being great and making this a wonderful and easy experience for us.  They’re becoming fast friends, learning their quirks, and generally being the rock stars we’ve always taken them for.

Quote of the day:  (In response to asking how he likes his coffee) “No milk.  Just leche.”  -John
