Not Fluent but Working On It

We've been having a great time.  My brain is so packed full of spanish words and verbs it is going to explode.  tonight we went to the grand opening of a second hand clothes shop in San Juan that the school is helping to get going.  Very fun.  Cake and orange soda. You were able to buy an outfit for a child and then donate it. 

yesterday we went to some pueblos blancos and saw where and how they make pottery. But on the way there we took the Avenue of the Generals and saw the house where Sandino was born.

We hiked all around Volcan Masaya, an active volcano!
