This morning: Juanita, Olferts maid from way back, came for breakfast. She gave Lyndon a jar of chileros!
Managua: little girl selling bags of water at an intersection
The group of us in Sunday school in Managua.
These are footprints in volcanic ash or mud, from about 6000 years ago. In Managua.
We went to the outdoor auditorium, Clayton did a "Taylor Ave Boys" trick and found a way onto the stage. The acoustics were great, I sang the refrain of "Because He Lives" at center stage, it felt like a studio. Then I took a bow for the Managuans in the passing truck.
We also got a tour of the national concert hall too. Nice place too ‘ sits 1200, the RWB has performed there.
Our driver Pablo, wife Amanda, and little Pablito
At the orphanage, the girls demonstrated their Nicaraguan dance skills
And one recited her peom she wrote on "the importance of love".

Lester and I talking on the roof of Doña Normas guest house at dusk (before supper, about 6 pm).
Sunset before supper
I experienced joy and sadness both today – sadness in knowing that there will be some of the kids from last time here I wont see, joy in seeing the girls at the orphanage, and how they just wanted to be teenage girls. They loved Baileys curly blonde hair. And they saw Bens long blonde hair in the pictures I brought and thot he was handsome too.
I was trying to get text messages through to anait since landing at the airport last night. Turns out I was sending to the wrong number last night (780 and not 781) and today she was receiving but we were not getting back responses. So I was missing my family connection a lot. And I know anait has a lot on her mind while I am away, i wish we could share that together, and this experience together too.
Its hot in Managua, but not as hot in Diriamba. Bailey is taking care of me, telling me when to sit down and when to get out of the van. And the earplugs she gave me a really comfortable, so I slept really well last night. And in turn, she walked with me to the cyber cage tongiht, and she stayed close to "El Gigante Mike". So I was able to take care of her too.
Now I am IMing with my family: A and I have a running joke about camels, and she just asked me:
are there camels in nigadagrwa?
Good night all. I will post again tomorrow night I think.
