After spending more than a little bit of time daunted by the thought of actually starting this blog, I’ve decided to structure it a little differently than I have in the past. It’s been over 3 weeks since I’ve had any access to internet, and 5 weeks now that I’ve been in Nicaragua. Too much has happened to recount it all chronologically, so I’ve decided to separate my posts into topics. This way you’re free to read about whatever might interest you (and ignore my musings on vegetarianism in Nicaragua or the details of how to make corn tortillas from scratch – food post spoiler alert) if you so wish. The official Raleigh blog will be updated much more frequently than will this one, so if you want to read more or catch a glimpse of me in action visit https://raleighinternational.org/blog/costa-rica-nicaragua/. If you’d like to send me a message (highly encouraged), you can also use the form at the bottom of this page https://raleighinternational.org/contact-a-volunteer-costa-rica-nicaragua-expedition/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Sorry I won’t have the chance to post many photos until next changeover (11/25-11/28). You’ll mostly have to take my word for it that it’s absolutely beautiful here!
