Today was our last full day at Campo Alegria! We had the crew of kids from the local school we’ve been doing a day camp at come to the camp today for a water slide and pinatas!!! It was a blast! Basically, we dug a trench out from the hill, down the beach to the lake, put plastic down and then hooked up a pump with pipes running from the lake to the top of the slide – that puppy cranked out 300 gallons a minute! Definitely not your every day slip and slide! The kids had a BLAST! So did our teens!
We fed the group of close to sixty kids lunch, and then also had two giant pinatas – one for the girls and one for the boys. These kids know how to beat a pinata!!!
The clock is ticking on our time in Nicaragua. Tomorrow morning we’ll say goodbye to the camp, get on a bus and head back to the capital city, Managua. On the way we’ll stop at Granada and Masaya for some touristy type activity, and then stay at a hotel near the airport. Saturday morning we’re up obscenely early, and arrive back in the US at 5pm (parents, don’t forget to pick up your kids – I don’t want to miss seeing my kids before their bedtime because I’m waiting at the airport!)! Where did these two weeks go?
