We started the day with a delicious typical Nicaraguan meal of gallo pinto,eggs and fruit. After breakfast, we headed to a Nicaraguan market in San Rafael del Sur where the girls were to buy food as part of learning about Nicaraguan life. They practiced their Spanish and did a GREAT job! It was really fun to see.
After the market, it was more work at the community. It was hotter today, but the girls did a great job.
We met with Joe, our favorite cultural guide with Me to We, who spoke to us about religion in Nicaragua to prepare us for mass. We attended mass in a local barrio and it was beautiful. Bianca did a great job introducing our group to the priest and congregation and the girls were able to practice the prayers they spent hours learning! A very proud teacher here!!!! Thank you Joe- what a beautiful experience.
