The Nicaragua preparations continue.  After a group meeting about the trip, we were given the infamous black bag to fill with 50 pounds worth goodies to give away in the villages.  Thanks to the Dollar Tree, and a quick run-through of my closet, I was able to load up the black bag with clothes, stuffed animals, coloring books and crayons, nail polish and hair bows, bubbles, stickers, and flip flops.  I cannot wait to deliver these!

my shield.

In not-so-fun preparation news... I headed to the doc this week to get the necessary vaccinations and prescriptions for the trip.  The doc informed me that you can visit the CDC website, click on the country you're visiting, and see which vaccines and meds are recommended for that area.  I thought that was a pretty neat trick.  After a tetanus shot, a Hepatitis A vaccine, and prescriptions for malaria and typhoid fever, I am all set to go!

straight paths.

Thanks to a new friend, I've gotten the chance to learn more about Google, more about the capabilities of my phone, and how beneficially the two can work together.  We
visited Managua, Nicaragua via Google Earth and checked out the area... the volcanoes, the lakes, the city itself.  It fascinates me how detailed it gets and how you can zoom right in... down to the city streets and neighborhoods!  I have to say, it was pretty neat traveling to Managua before even getting on a plane!
