Our adventures in Nicaragua were eye-opening to a new kind of reality.  We built great relationships with the people of Siares as we worked alongside the locals and learned about their lives, culture and understanding of the world.  I recommend that everyone take a trip like this to gain a new perspective and appreciation for life in the United States, learn to understand another culture and better one’s understanding of self.
