Our week in Masaya, Nicaragua

Our week in Masaya was great. we went to Mariposas Spanish school, stayed in home stays on our own, we went to the top of volcano Santiago, saw lava, swam in a crater, kayaked, and went on a hike. My home stay was great, my host family was very social and kind. My host sister and host brother were the best, it was difficult to say goodbye at the end. Spanish school was great to, I feel I learned a lot about proper Spanish grammar. Masaya has been one of my favorite places to be during this trip.

On the Saturday that we stayed in Masaya we went to a crater lake. 

It was lovely, had warm water, good food, and it was a relaxing environment. We also kayaked, I know for some of us it was the first time kayaking including myself. It was a good day at the lake.

During our time in Concepcion Masaya we went to Spanish school. Some were learning to speak the language, others including myself were learning Spanish grammar. On the first day I was having a hard time with the class but then it got easy and in the end I learned a lot. In this picture we are all chillin in hammocks, this was the kick it spot for us.

We also stayed in amazing homestays, The families were so caring and kind. My host family was the best. My host sister was so kind, she painted my nails, she´s smart, and got a degree in psychology. My host brother was also great, he knows how to sing and play guitar very well. He also had a store and he would let me have snacks from there. My host mom was also great she would cook for me everyday. My host family was the best and it was hard to say goodbye. We exchanged contact information and I hope that we keep in touch. 

Goodbye reunion with all our host families.
