Just wanted to post a few photos from this past week and say hi! We've been hanging out at Camino del Gigante, a gringo hostel on a surf beach in Nicaragua. We meant to be here for just a couple of days but it looks like it has already been a week! And I think we might leave tomorrow if we can get our shiz together.
Our last few days on Ometepe were pretty cool! We rented a scooter and spent a day checking out the Island on the brick roads (man that must have been a ton of work!). And for our last 2 days we painted a wall mural in one of the bedrooms in exchange for a few nights free at the hostel. We spent 11 hours total on the wall and I think it turned out quite well! The bottom of it looks a little weird, but we ran out of white paint so we had to do something down there. And our paint brushes were not the easiest to use, but we made do and had a blast! Andrew took a bunch of pictures so we could make a time-lapse video (coming shortly!) so it was like a double-whammy art project.
Our next stop will be Leon, Nicaragua. It is north of here and we will have to take a few busses I think, and maybe a taxi to get there, but it shouldn't be more than a few hours total. It is a fairly large city with some history and culture for us to learn about. Also there is another volcano there that we can apparently board down!!! There are some good nature hikes and outdoorsy things to do nearby, and the hostel we picked out looks really fun. We hope the internet there is good because Harrison's first birthday is on Sunday and we would love to facetime with him!!! Aparently he walked a few steps the other day! And I thought he said "hello" to me a few days ago, and then I realized it was just Kim being a ventriloquist which is easy to do over facetime :)
We miss the little guy!!! And Everyone else at home! Any time any of you wants to come down, let us know!!! We will find the best spot to hang, just get a place ticket, we will do the rest! :D
