Yesterday was a work day here at the center. Sarah and I were both excited because we were working on the upstairs dorms where our new rooms will be. They are working hard to finish two rooms so Sarah and I can have our own space before the next delegation gets into town. When the upstairs is completed, it will have a bathroom, small kitchen area, and stargazing patio. I am so very excited. The Nica staff around here are starting to remember our names and it is fun learning spanish terms with them. Thank god they are so patient with our spanish. I can't wait until I can understand all their bromas (jokes) which I am sure pokes a little fun at the chelas (white people). The Bucknell college kids leave today, so I don't really know what is in store for Sarah and I. Hopefully laundry and cleaning the place up. Hopefully the guys will work on el piso arriba (floor above) so we can move in up there soon! Other than that, things in Nica are nice. A steady 80 degree temperature with little humidity (it is the dry season). I don't think I have seen a mosquito yet! Knock on wood.
OH and if you ARE reading this, comments are nice and encouraging!
