rum, sun, and Nicaragua

omg i haven't written in a week!! i don't even know where to start...i had an absolutely life changing, amazing, wonderful time in Nicaragua!! It was so great to see L and see where she was going to be living, the weather wasn't so bad either (80-90 every day and SUNNY)

I didn't take too many pictures in Granada because of pick pocketing, but it was really cool to stay there and see what L would be doing for the next couple of months.

Some highlights of my trip:

1.) L's plane got delayed so I had to stay in Managua for a night without her (which actually wasn't horrible)

2.) fresh squeezed juice (YUM)

3.) learning how to salsa from a nicaraguan guy (who was also super sweaty and a little creepy, and we saw him like 3 other times..awkward)

4.) house hunting (i felt like i was on house hunters international)

5.) the beers were only 1-2 DOLLARS!!!

6.) meeting so many amazing people

7.) zip lining

8.) kayaking

9.) seeing the place where L is going to work

10.) chocolate

11.) the monkey hut

12.) losing my bathing suit top (this was a product of the rum and i never found it....good thing it was dark)

13.) my cab driver stopping to take a pee 2 times on the way to the airport

and here are some pictures:
