Nicaragua...

Only one more day to go... On Saturday my boyfriend and I head to Nicaragua. It's his first time, and my seventh! I spent a few summers volunteering at an orphanage there and pretty much left my heart. I try to go back twice a year (last time was in March) and I go mainly to see my beautiful little goddaughter, Linda. She is five and a half now and I can't believe I have known here since she was 10 months old! We will be hanging out with her and the other kids at the orphanage but we will also do other fun stuff, most of it related to beach, sun, or nature. A canopy tour, some kayaking in Laguna de Apoyo (or Chicken Lake, as my boyfriend likes to say.) We are staying at three different places, all very different! For the first time in Nicaragua I will have air condition and a private bath every night - sweet! It's funny but I have NEVER slept in in Nicaragua, life has always followed the rythm of the sun - get up early, nap in the afternoon, go to bed early to avoid the bugs and save electricty (if there is power, that is. "Se fue la luz" has to be on the top ten list of Nicaraguan phrases.)

Can't wait. I am so excited that I am nervous. I really need to adjust my expectations a little...
