Hello everyone, it’s Katie here. Today, we had a free day where we all got a chunk of free time in the morning and in the afternoon. We started off the day by waking up at 8:00 am!! That is super early compared to the usual 6:00 am or even 5:00 am wake-up calls. It felt so good to be able to sleep in and get some extra rest. Then, the day got even better because we went to Alfreditos and had a plate of delicious pancakes and bananas drizzled with syrup for breakfast.

After breakfast, we walked back to the hostal to prepare for our English classes that we had later that evening. After our hard work, we were awarded with some free time. During our free time, we got to go to the local bakery for some cakes in a cup (I’m not quite sure what they’re called) and they were pretty much the highlight of my day. We also got to go to Burger King, the super mall, the supermarket, the internet cafe, Casa Cultura, the coffee cafe and small booths on the sidewalk for some souvenir shopping.

For lunch we ate a traditional Nicaraguan meal that doesn’t look the most appetizing but it was SO GOOD. In the afternoon, we had more free time to talk to our families, shop, walk around the city and just hang out at the coffee cafe to talk to each other and have some drinks to cool off from the heat.

Then, we headed off to our second English class and there were so many smiles and so much laughter. It was great to see that all the kids were learning, but also having fun all at the same time. When class was over we headed back for dinner at Alfreditos. After dinner, we went back to the hostal for our nightly meeting and then went to bed to charge up for another exciting day!
