Today was fun day and we had a great time all day. Today we woke up, ate breakfast, and then traveled to Masaya to spend some time at a resort called the Monkey Hut. At the resort, we all hung out at Lake Apoyo. Some of us swam, some of us went Kayaking, while others of us hung out on the shore. After a few hours of us swimming, we ate lunch all together at the Monkey Hut. After lunch, we went to a city called Granada where we walked around and seen some of the local shops. This city was very colorful and exciting. We also got to meet some of the students from the Granada delegation as well as their GG Leaders. We were given time to shop and hang out. After about an hour, we went to another city called Catalina. We were taken to a view point where we all took pictures and took in the amazing view. After the pictures, we did a little more shopping. When we were done, we came back to Esteli and most of the students went straight to sleep.
Today we learned that after working so hard, we deserved to play hard. What surprised me was all of the beautiful and historical cities we visited. The people, the architecture, the culture is so rich and the locals try hard to preserve these things in their cities. I am most proud that everyone got along and was able to have a great time with one another.
As being the El Lider Del Dia, I felt like I did a great job because I am a positive person and I work well with others and I also know how to communicate with others. I also learned that it is not easy being a leader and trying to lead 21 other people who are my peers. But it was a great experience.
Hey Mom and Dad, I miss you guys so much. I can’t wait to be home. Love you both and see you soon! – Elisa.
