She’s feelin’ 22

On Tuesday, after 6 hours of Spanish classes and our hourlong community English class, we celebrated our first birthday in this little Nica town. 

Maddie just turned 22!

We went to a restaurant in town and got drinks and dessert. The total for 5 people (3 beers, 2 cocktails, 2 refrescos, and 3 orders of buñuelos) was C$375, which is about $13. For Nicaragua, that’s pretty steep, but I think this is the nicest restaurant in town, and my refresco y buñuelos were muy delicioso.

(Not pictured from our training squad: Amanda and me, because we were on the other side of the table, and also because I was taking the picture.)

It was a fun time, but it was also a Tuesday in the middle of training, so now it’s back to the crazy, exhausting grind.
