Lisa and I have plans on Saturday to visit a nature reserve project call UCA Miraflor. We´re going to take a horse ride to see some waterfalls and an outlook for the day. The bus leaves really early, so we´ll have to get an early start. Then I have to leave early again on Sunday to catch a bus from Esteli to Managua to get to the airport. My flight leaves at 12 in the afternoon, so I will want to plan in plenty of cushion time.
So really I only have another couple of days here in Esteli. Oh, also today we went with a couple of other students and a guide at the school to visit a paper recycling project. It´s really cool. It´s a group of women who turned a neighborhood dump into a garden with a workshop to recycle paper and make notecards and books to sell. They have volunteers to help out, but mostly it´s 6 single mom´s that are working to educate their neighborhood about taking care of the enviornment. Deforestation, climate change, composting, etc.
Lisa and I are finding our way around and while it´s not a very pretty town, the people are friendly and there is a lot going on. I don´t know if I´ll have time for another entry again before I leave, but all is well.
