This morning we had breakfast at Rafaela’s house–gallo pinto, plantains, papaya, y pan. Then some of the Nicas came to pick us up to go to school. Throughout the morning we watched the younger kids compete in various field-day-esque activities. There was a tug-of-war, a relay race, and a ball pass. At the end, we all got to compete in a relay race against the Nicas. We were all surprised by how fast they were! Roberto, the dance and physical activities teacher, determined it was a tie, but I think we definitely won.
After lunch we and some older students went on a bus to Masaya, where a large market is located. There were some great buys there, and we all came home with some great souvenirs. Overall, it was another great day in Nicaragua.
