Nicaragua - Day 2 - Nagarote/Leon

It's pretty hot and humid here in Nicaragua! You know that when the evening low is 77, you're gonna have pretty hot days... 

Today was awesome because we met and rehearsed with our Community Choir in Nagarote. It's an all ages choir, and it was so much fun meeting everyone! We're partnering with a fantastic organization called NicaPhoto. I can't wait to add them to the Just Be Nice Party!

 This is my favorite photo of the crew, because one little boy is punching his friend right in the face.

After our rehearsal and some impromptu piano lessons (everyone wanted to learn!)  we took a walking tour of the town. 

It was amazing! 

-I saw my first volcano. (It's called, Momotombo.) It even started smoking just for our viewing pleasure! 

-I found a tree (a few, actually) painted Packers' green & gold.  

 -I rode on the back of a horse cart to make sure that we returned in time for dinner. 

Photos of all of these shenanigans are below. 

Tomorrow, we go to visit some of the children's neighborhoods (they want to show us where they live) and get back to more music making. I'll make sure to post some video of our songs soon! 

Cant wait to see what Day 3 brings... 

Talk soon, Kristen

 With our lovely (un)official tour guide (and fab singer), Gema.

 It's hard to tell- but we're freaking out on the back of a rickety, wooden horse cart in this photo!
