Where I stayed
There are two Walter's here. The older Walter (Del gado) owns the language school. The young Walter (Garcia) lives here in one of the dorm rooms. Walter Garcia is a good painter. He painted the mural at our first hotel in Esteli. He just got a job painting murals all over the country at the schools. In the next 5 years his group of 10 painters will try to paint 500 murals. He is nice and he is giving me art lessons.
This ia a fairly new house we stay at (the language school) but it has seen some dramatic history
This house was built on the perfect spot because they could see all around. You could see about a 180 degree view. You can see the river and the mountains. The soldiers liked the house so they put their important soldiers in it. The house is made with lot's of cement and rocks. The cement is thick. There are bullet holes in the house from the war. There are holes in parts of the roof from airlplanes shooting too and some from grenades.
That is a pretty interesting story isn't it.
Yesterday I played cards and cribbage with Jess. His room is in the dorm. I think the beds are too small for him. He is from Oregon. If you change the e's to i's you will get origin.
Esteli has those 400 volt speaker cars too. It is too loud. I think they should fine them every day they drive around. There are tons of dogs, tons of cats, tons of rooster and a pig. The pig lives right next to our house, oink, oink, cock-a-doodle-doo a cat in the shoe.
I had pancakes for breakfast today
