Things I Learned in Nicaragua

  • My grandma is a packrat. But a very organized packrat. Nothing is cluttered or out of place. 
  • My uncle is scarily similar to my dad...in looks and mannerisms. 
  • AC is a wonderful invention.
  • My grandmother has a beautiful soul...despite all these grim circumstances.
  • My grandma wants to buy a very elegant dress to wear to my wedding.
  • My grandma probably won't make it to my wedding...
  • My dad is a courageous and loving son. 
  • You can drive the wrong way down a one way street and live to tell about it.
  • My grandpa, despite being in his 80s and a bit hard of hearing, can drive a stick shift down the mean streets of Managua with ease.
  • My grandpa has the kind of love for my grandma that I hope my husband has for me when we've been married for 57 years. It's amazing and inspiring. 
  • Nothing beats gallo pinto for breakfast.
  • He doesn't want to live without her. 
  • My grandparents have been all over the world together; England, Spain, Israel, Brazil, etc; and now they're ready for their final trip to be with our Lord in Heaven.
