after arriving on the island, zac, the volunteer i was visiting, and i promptly spent some time relaxing in some hammocks available at the hostel he lives at while his host family prepared baho (sounds like "bow" in english)- a traditional nicaraguan dish. the way it was described to me is they start with a layer of banana leaves, then layer different things like plantain, yucca, vegetables, more starchy things, and meat. after everything has been properly layered, they wrap it in a plastic bag and then place it in a big pot to boil for several hours. the result tasted kind of like pot roast to me, it was pretty good. complemented, of course with some rice and cabbage salad.

|gustavo was super proud of those mangos|

i also went to a cock fight, planned and observed a class, cut coconuts and ate them, climbed a volcano, and went to a training session with local businessmen about social responsiblity and identifying relevant stakeholders. i'm going to break it up because this is already kind of long.
