Thoughts from Nicaragua | Nourish International

July 16, 2013 | Posted in 2013, Cornell, Nicaragua, Summer Projects, UPenn | By

We’ve been here for over 10 days now. We had our first weekend trip which was pretty cool. We stayed at a hotel right on the beach, so frequent trips to the ocean were had. The food was pretty good! Transportation definitely proved to be challenging because our group is pretty big at 11.

Although I got sick for the first time last Thursday I was pleasantly surprised by how fast I recovered. By Friday night I was pretty much completely back to normal thanks to my host mother and Cory’s help with plenty of fluids and meds. Cory is the volunteer coordinator who’s a pretty cool guy. Currently in possession of his swim trunks since I so wisely didn’t bring any with me.

So far the work has consisted of electrical work, data entry, and visiting patients. The entry was finished pretty quickly but the electrical work is taking a very long time. It consists of hammering away at walls for a few hours with small breaks in between. Visiting patients has been cool so far but it is certainly difficult to understand what is being said. We start teaching tomorrow which should be interesting and probably pretty hard since it’s in a foreign language. I’m looking forward to seeing the agricultural work that is being done.
