Viewing Post for: Nicaragua Volunteer Adventure 2012

Date: January 29th, 2012
Location: El Sauce and Ocotal

How do you describe what it is like to be with 40 locals atop a Mountain around a fire, under thousands of stars, with a local band playing, singing and laughing? Then you head out into the night to end up in a local home of swept dirt floor, a single light bulb and the smoky smell of the dying fire in the kitchen? The day was filled with the friendly local people teaching us how to make pine needle baskets and to rolling tortillas. The best part is sharing the smiles and laughter whether we spoke the same language or not.
