Valentin Ceramics

We went to Masaya and visited the Valentin pottery studio. We learned the accent technique that they use in order to create their beautiful pottery. They use all the natural materials that their ancestors use with the exception of just a few. It is truly wonderful to learn about and is gorgeous. The girls were also able to try their hands at the wheel. They were very happy to have Mr. Briddell there to help.:) so much fun!!!!

Mombacho Volcano

We visited the Mombacho Volcano where we toured the La Mar Dulce coffee plantation. This plantation is family run and produces the delicious coffee- Las Flores- my favorite:) . We toured the plantation and the girls learned how many steps it takes to make the cup of coffee they enjoy. The La Mar Dulce plantation consists of 133 manzanas which is 96 hectares or 330 acres. Now THATS some serious coffee😉

Tio Antonio is SUCH and inspiration and wonderful speaker. All of his employees are deaf and the food is amazing!!! If ever in Granada it is a MUST!!!!

Los Cardones

imageWe were fortunate enough to spend the afternoon at Los Cardones- an eco friendly surf lodge close to San Diego that we were lucky to stay at our first two years in San Diego. They have the most beautiful view, delicious food and the friendliest staff. I was beside myself that I was able to share my little personal slice of heaven with these amazing students and fellow teachers.  I highly recommend a stay here!!!:)
