Ola has been saying that since we landed. Every time we do anything or introduce ourselves, she has to include "nosotros somos familia!!!" And she couldn't be more correct. This past week would not seem like much but every day was an entirely new experience with Nicaragua and with each other.
We spent our nights really getting to know each other and so we all got to see the difference this trip made in our lives. But our time with each other did not just end there; we shared everything. Our meals were like thanksgiving. We would order a meal but those plates were passed around and shared with everyone else on the table. I absolutely loved that because we all quickly got so comfortable with each other.
