This week I had the opportunity to get some experience in the writing of grant proposals. They were writing a grant proposal to get funding to introduce a new crop in a rural area that will dramatically improve the nutrition of the children. I tried to sit and absorb everything they were doing. This is one of the reasons doing a semester abroad is so great, because you do not get learning experiences like that in a classroom.
This week we did take a break for some fun. There is a famous Nicaraguan skateboarder whose video premier we went to. That was a pretty cool thing to be at and we were invited to the after party because apparently we have "connections," whatever that means.
At the current moment I am quite exhausted because I waited for my bus to come for 1 1/2 hours and it never did, I ended up taking a taxi to get the The Nehemiah Center and luckily getting here right before the rain began.
