Day 11 – Almost Home
As we prepared to leave Chinandega this morning, Grace had our worship thought saying, “Through building churches of worship, through the children’s laughter, through serving amidst poverty, we’ve had to opportunity to find another piece of the heart of God here in Nicaragua.”
We loaded our bus and headed to Granada for a canopy tour. Ask anyone in our group and they will tell you, it was awesome. Eleven canopy guides harnessed us up and zipped us over two kilometers of cable suspended between 11 trees. It was great to relax and enjoy a fun time together.
Next, we did some shopping in the quaint little town of Granada. Historic Spanish churches, elaborate architecture, cobble-stone streets, and brightly painted houses combined to create a unique cultural experience. This was the nicest area we had seen since coming to Nicaragua. Lizzy said, “This is nice, but I’m glad we’ve been able to see the real Nicaragua.”
Back in Managua, we found our motel, ate supper, went swimming in the pool, and made plans to meet in the front lobby at 3:30 tomorrow morning. We’re almost home.
That was day 11.
