On the bus to Esteli´, I bought a bag of cookies from one of the vendors that frequently board any and all buses. I guess I was expecting something more like mom´s christmas cookies but what I got I immediately named the "anti-cookie". It was everything a cookie should be ... except it had NO sugar and tasted more like a dog biscuit. And that´s exactly where they went .
Food here is slightly different. In Guatemala, I mostly ate chicken, beans, and rice. My diet in Honduras altered a bit with rice, beans and chicken. Here in Nicaragua, however, it seems to be beans, chicken and rice. I´m so thankful for the variety. Thank god for beer!!!!
Found a scorpion hanging out on my backpack this morning when I woke up. Time to start checking shoes and everything before using them. I´ll have to do pictures later.
