This trip was called a mission trip...a trip to Nicaragua. I am sure that people go there to vacation though...I am told on the Carribean side there are resorts and places that are nice. I haven't seen that side of the country. Some day I will...just to get an idea if there is some balance of the poverty that from my standpoint is everywhere.
Our group got home last evening so as I write this...my feelings are raw. They are mixed up and I seem to always feel this when I leave. I tell myself that I won't do that again, yet every year I do. Will next year be different? We'll see how I feel early next year.

|The countryside is green and lush|
The arrival to the town
The exhaustion...sleeping on the bags on the bus
