Hello friends, families, and fellow Glimpsers! Today was our first fun day of the trip, and what’s more fun than waking up at 5 A.M. to start the day? After a long bus ride, we arrived to Somoto Canyon, where we were guided by the Namancambre Tour office as we hiked, swam, and jumped of off some rocks into the water.

Our quote of the day was, “the greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it,” said by Moliere. The group truly exemplified that today as we overcame the obstacles and fears that were presented to us, maintaining a positive attitude and supporting one another, despite complications.

Tomorrow will be our “Living Like a Local” day, in which we’ll pair up with each other and go about the day with local families and trying to live on the same amount and in the same style as they would. The day will present many challenges, but all Glimpsers are going in eager and with an open mind.
