Last Saturday, Manna helped throw the official opening fiesta of the Augusts’ community center. Yours truly was in charge of face painting which, I believe, was a huge success. The boy in the second picture (like the one who received the sideways Nicaraguan flag) may not agree…

Some of my new Nicaraguan friends and swimming students, along with Jeannine, another summer volunteer from Yale.

More pictures and stories coming soon, I hope. Any suggestions?
