¿Qué tal Nicaragua?


Hello from Central America! 😱 In case you didn't know, I have begun traveling again and have been on the road now for two weeks.

¿Qué tal, Nica?
Hola Johaan, Thank you for including me on the blog subscription list. Ned and I have been to Nica and had a fabulous trip. It is therefore fun to read your perspective. When we went to San Juan del Sur, it was not yet gringo-ized at all. In fact, we took a duffel bag full of t-shirts, duct tape, and other sundries for the kids in the then-village. We also had a fabulous experience at a small eco-lodge. To get there, we had to ford a rather "exciting" arroyo. Looking forward to your notes on Panamá (where we were in March-April). Abrazos, Ann

Sounds like you're having fun. Tell Steven hi and give him a hug. I'll print out your info and give it to Granny to read. She'll have to see the pictures later - my colored ink is getting low. All's well in Trinity County - it's warming up and the pool is wonderful. Take care, be safe and keep in touch. See you in August! oxox
