Trip Reflections...

It's been over a week since I came back from Nicaragua and looking back, it was a great vacation.

I got to see family and friends who I don't see very often. At the same time, I got to see part of my native country which I had not seen before. I regret that it took me three years to come back and visit, but at the same time my limited budget forces me to pick and choose my travel destinations carefully.

Some of the things that I learned on this trip include: girls are poopy heads (don't ask), tourism is dramatically increasing in Nicaragua, the dollar is not weak everywhere in the world, Americans are more adventurous than I thought, volunteers have a very interesting and unique culture, and the internet can now be found almost anywhere in the world.

Less than a year from now, I will be a lawyer (ignoring the minor detail of bar results) and will probably have more money to travel, but even less time to do it. Nonetheless, I look forward to revisiting the country.
