It's with mixed feelings that we find ourselves in the final phase of the course. We've transitioned from our homestays in El Lagartillo, through Laguna De Apoyo, and now at Casa Capricho in Granada. Each transition brought greater amenities, dipping the toe deeper as we prepare to return to the USA or Canada tomorrow. El Lagartillo was the biggest place on course , but has only 35 houses. This morning brought AC and a mirror for the first time in two weeks. But haven't we done very well without these things that once seemed essential?!

    [post_content] => Hi Fellow Dragon’s adventurers!

It’s the last few days and for me, this was the most magical part of my trip to Nicaragua. I was trying to savor every second of what remained and I was feeling nostalgic already for the time that we had spent together and the experiences we had lived together as a group. Most importantly, I was thinking about how to keep that energy going once I returned to the US, but first I had to pinpoint what was producing that feeling and creating the energy. Was it just the country, was it the people in my group, my leaders, the activities we had completed, or was I contributing to the energy?

For me, my trip in Nicaragua awakened a creative side that I had let go to sleep long ago. I was worried a bit during those last days about whether or not I would be able to stay in touch with that feeling once I returned home. I made a pact with myself that I would dedicate myself to staying cultivating that sensation for the rest of my life, no matter what. I was also overwhelmed by a sense of self-realization about what I valued in my personal life. I had recently spent a lot of time struggling with making sure that I was living a life with my family that was truly in tune with our values. So much time for reflection and contact with “el buen vivir” in El Lagartillo, really reminded me what I wanted in my life. I was able to write all this down in my letter to myself. It was so amazing to get that in the mail months later and to be reminded again of all that my time in Nicaragua represented for me. Take these last hours to hold on to what you most valued during your trip, reflect, and whittle it down to it’s essence, so that you can be sure to stay in touch with that forever!
