Since the last time I blogged I hiked and camped on a volcano, tried out the computers and vivero groups, and visited San Juan Del Sur. The hiking was pretty tough, especially since I had very little traction on my shoes and we all know that hiking is all about traction. It was pretty amazing being at the top of the volcano and honestly it was a little scary being so close that you could easily fall in to your death. Pretty cool for a first hiking experience I think.


The computers and vivero groups were both fun experiences. It was neat being able to work with different members of our group and to take a stab at the different work that we as a group are doing here. This week I have switched back to the medical group. This turned out to be good timing because we are now trained to give blood pressure and measure blood sugar levels so visiting patients with the promotoras is now more interactive instead of simple observation.


San Juan Del Sur was a nice beach town. We went to a beach called Maderas which was beautiful. One of the girls got stabbed by a stingray in her foot and had to leave early. There was concern over whether it could be venomous but thankfully it wasn’t. On the last day of the trip the boys and I went on a fishing trip. Turns out we only got one bite on the trip and we didn’t even reel that in successfully. Even so, being out on the water was a great experience and we got to check out this little private beach where there were tons of crabs and hermit crabs. We manage to capture one crab and played with him for a little while, before of course letting him free.
