Nicaragua - Day 1 - Managua

Well- almost on a whim, I was invited and agreed to come on a two week tour in Nicaragua. Those of you who know me, are most likely not surprised by this. 

I'm here as a part of the Intake Ensemble, representing Intake Music (bringing traditional and Classical music together through cultural exchange & education) and officially here as a cultural representative of the United States. 

It's official- I was even picked up in a US Embassy van!

If Dan Malloy could see me now... 

 Happy on the flight...they let me keep my guitar with me. That ALWAYS makes me happy.

I'm going to try and post a blog each day depending on our access to wifi, so visit often for photos and stories. I think this is going to be yet another grand adventure!

And, if you're curious about where Nicaragua is...I took a screen shot of the map. I won't even tell you where I thought it was...

I'll post more soon!
