Tomorrow is day 3. We travel to see markets for local shopping and to see Maysaya Volcano. Already found some souvenirs and hope to find more tomorrow. Excited for group to travel into the "cloud forest" in elevated heights to witness the volcano. Hat? Check. Umbrella? Check. Sunscreen? Coat? Camera?? Check check check! 7:30 breakfast. 8 o'clock loading bus.
Time for boat ride. 3 boats and 3 groups. Cruising the 365 islands of Nicaragua . We'll have to come back to see more. The land here is 250k to 3 mill depending on what u want. See? Nicaragua is more than meets the eye.
Just before leaving Cafe Smiles I run into Wendy our tour guide from 3 years ago and the kids make a bike juicy.
Another way the deaf support their lives is by providing hand made quality hammocks. Their hammocks go all over the world. One was even given to the Pope in 2016. Of course, we helped.
Here students learn from the deaf how to sign spell their name then they earn a nickname from their presenter
After the tours we gathered for lunch. Very special place where food and experience provided by a deaf population. They cook and earn their living in many ways to support themselves because mainstream society doesn't have a place for them
Some market experiences and museum tour
We are ready for day two. Itinerary set for 3 walking tours and boat sight seeing ride. We lucked up and added horse carriage tours in the local cities to see how the local live. #luckyus!!!!
