Happy Independence day!!!

After enjoying a nice breakfast of pineapple, papaya, and egg, me, Jennifer and Kayla decided to shop at Walmart. We walked until getting to the highway, where we took a cab (cost was 20 per person).

Arriving at Walmart, reggaeton was playing and of course, everything was in Cordobas and in Spanish. Otherwise, it’s just like other Walmarts. We entered the TVs and electronic station, clothing, food; school office supplies; and hygienic respectively. I ended up buying some wipes, toilet tissue, sleeping bag, shampoo, conditioner, and chamomile tea for 710 cordobas (almost 30 bucks with 1 cordoba=0.03 cents).

After shopping, we took a cab back to AMOS, but the driver had a cocky attitude. So part of getting to AMOS is by passing through a cemetery (when giving a driving destination in Nicaragua, one has to provide the km, highway route, and a landmark). So we told him the km and that the cemetery was a landmark to get there. But instead of passing the cemetery, he stopped right near it. He gave an attitude “oh well you just told me to go to the cemetery, what now?” We then told him that it was farther down the street. He reluctantly kept driving, dropping us off maybe a mile from AMOS.We hiked and made it back safely. And thankfully it was before dinner time.Dinner tonight was all-American food: hamburgers and french fries with ice cream, apple pie, and cake. Since I didn’t eat beef, I just made a salad with lettuce and fries. We also had some music poppin’ and dancin’. The fiesta kept going until we were booted out of the kitchen. Going to the salsa club would have made a nice after party I think.

Dinner tonight was all U.S. American staple foods: Hamburgers and french fries with ice cream, apple pie, and cake. Since I didn’t eat beef, I just made a salad with lettuce and fries. We also had some music poppin’ and dancin’ like some Katy Perry or Drake. Sadly the fiesta felt short lived and we were booted out of the kitchen at 8 or 9. Going to the salsa club would have made a nice after party I think.

Later, I facetimed with mom, dad, and Cody, though the reception was horrible. I shared with them my experience in El Bambu. And Cody got a cute new collar!
