A quick note from the group: after a very long but mostly uneventful day of travel, we’ve arrived safe and sound in Managua. All of our flights were on time and the air was smooth – couldn’t ask for better!

Our friends John and Victor met us at the airport and we had a brief meeting at Compañeros’ headquarters, Casa Blanca, then we were dropped off at our home stays. Tomorrow we hike a volcano and see Managua in the daylight!

John, Kelly and Kirsten the Vanderlindens, Brian Hershey and I were together last night and had you in our thoughts and prayers. We enjoyed pizza and birthday cake (for Brian) with you in mind. Looking forward to good recipes upon your return. Much love. Lyn
