Were thrilled to report that the student group has arrived safely in Miami. They are on American Airlines flight #1182. It should take them anywhere between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours to go through customs and immigration. If you're meeting the students at the airport, please arrive around 1PM in order to meet them at the International Arrivals hall.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

All the best,
Dragons Admin

Group Yak
Throughout our trip, each of us has learned more about Nicaragua and about ourselves. We have discovered that Nicaragua is a place of perseverance while finding that we can adapt to new experiences we never even imagined we would have. We have found new interests, passions, and qualities within ourselves during the trek, homestay, and volunteer work on Bona Fide. We set some goals for ourselves during orientation just four fast weeks ago, and during transference we distilled what we have accomplished and discovered during our month in Nicaragua.
Here are our results:
1. I want to understand more about nature and my role as a part of it. 2. I have a newfound passion for permaculture.
3. One month is all you need to create really amazing friendships.
4. I learned how to step out of my comfort zone and adapt to new situations.
5. I have a passion for farming and the environment that developed considerably during my month in Nicaragua.
6. I really miss El Lagartillo and I fell in love with the simple lifestyle.
7. I realized how much my hometown means to me.
8. It's ok to be alone and do things for yourself.
9. I have new friends from all different places.
10. 120 cordobas can buy you flip flops that can take you a long way.
11. I've learned to greater appreciate the privileges and opportunities of my home.
12. I have a newfound interest on where our food really comes from.
13. I want to start a rooftop garden because I fell in love with permaculture and I am going back to Bona Fide next summer.
Each of these is the most important lesson we learned about ourselves on our expedition into a new country. Every experience was new to us and this led to some of these statements such as newfound friendships through bonding as well as learning from the new experiences about what we want to change about the world. This trip has changed each of us in our own way.

We left our homestays 2 days ago and now we are in Leon. Yesterday was so much fun, we were split into groups and got to explore this beautiful and vibrant city. But today has been one of my favorite days of the trip. We went to this beautiful beach for the entire day. The ocean was so warm and clear it literally pulled you in. We then had an amazing lunch full of local fish and fresh juices. I love the beach so it was amazing to get to share that with my group. A few of us, after playing pool volleyball, went for s walk on the beach to a collection of rocks. The waves were pretty intense and crashed so much so you would get sprayed. At the same time, heat lightning was happening so it painted an amazing scene. I was really upset to leave because it really was breathtakingly beautiful. Despite half of our group being lobsters now, we are all pretty content. Tomorrow we set off for a week at Ometepe, and I am so excited. Mainly because hopefully we get to find out more about the mystical Mitch...

Greetings from the beautiful island of Ometepe!

We have made it to the incredible permaculture farm, Bona Fide!

We are working on a few projects here, that include gardening, a nursery, picking fruit, taking care of chickens, and helping with preparing meals. This is giving all of us a chance to slow down, work and live together and a group, and start to put into proactive practice our developing concepts of how we can positively impact our world with our food choices and lifestyle decisions.

This week will also include our time to start to ask the living questions of how we can intentionally choose to live our life and the purpose and message behind these choices.

We send all of our friends and family big love from the land of lakes and volcanos.

Con amor y solidaridad,

    [post_content] => After our day of travel, we have landed in León before we set off on our final leg of our journey!

And what better way to celebrate our day together, and acknowledge the Nicaraguan National Revolution celebration than a nice day at the beach!

We played in the waves, ate an amazing marisco meal, and enjoyed our time together as a group at the amazing beach, Las Peñitas.

Tomorrow we head out to the incredible island, Ometepe. Here we will be living and working on the permaculture farm, Bona Fide. One of our incredible instructors, Mitch, is the Educational Director here, and will be guiding our learning service activities for the first half of the week.

The second half of the week will focus on transference; preparing ourselves to integrate our learning back into our home environments.

We will have intermittent internet access this upcoming week, but will keep everyone posted here!

Abrazos!
