Saludos de Granada!

After a long trip, we have made it to Granada, Nicaragua safe and sound! It was a joy to see this group of diverse students connect with each other as quickly as they did. Today we saw our students get to know new people, have fun, and help each other out even though they had a tiring day of travel.

We got to know our hostel, which will be our home for the next 18 days. The staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful, and our program coordinators, Ena and McCall, have clearly put a lot of work into preparing this experience for us. Granada is a beautiful city and the bus trip from Managua to Granada had us staring excitedly out the window to see the beautiful countryside.

The highlight of my day was meeting some of these great kids for the first time and seeing a little peak of their unique personalities.  I look forward to getting to know them better and seeing them take on roles as leaders in this incredible experience.
