One day during my campo homestay, I was walking with my host cousin and snapped this picture. I think my favorite part of my campo homestay was walking around the roads there and taking in the sights and smells of rural Nicaraguan life.
These are all of the JV´s in Nicaragua at the farewell party for Michael and Jenna.
Here´s me with my community mates! From left to right: Lauren, Patrick, Christine, and me.
After my homestay in Ciudad Sandino, I went back to the campo for a fair with some of the other JV´s. There was dancing, food, goat raffles, and more!
This is me and Maribel, my host mom and dad´s granddaughter. She´s the absolute cutest.
This is a picture from Laguna de Apoyo where we went on retreat. It was beautiful there! The water was perfectly clear and the lake was surrounded by mountains. The best part of it all: I got to go swimming!
One last thing I wanted to share with you all is a video. While I was interning at the Catholic Student Center at WashU, the other interns and I did a spoof of a youtube video and I find it to be pretty fun and entertaining. I hope you enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCeYVzBahBQ And here´s the original video if you´d like to compare: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gU157NWHBiM&feature=related
I am wishing you all a Merry Christmas! If anyone wanted to send me some snow, I certainly wouldn´t object......
