Random Tidbits of Life at the Moment

~We've been here for six weeks today!
~Jeff had to kill an injured bat tonight.
~We bought a vehicle this week. Now for learning to drive on Nica roads. ( It is not uncommon to pass cattle in the grassy medians, horsecarts, other small farm animals...and this is in the city.)
~Jeff and a new Nicaraguan friend managed to get the vehicle registered and insured...which took 10 hours and 6 different DMV like stops.
~Fireworks are very popular here in the month of December. I heard some at 5am yesterday morning.
~The kids have started asking for rice & beans for lunch and sometimes dinner...how's that for acclimation!
~We found out about a thrift shop here...they get the clothes and goods from clothing drops and thrift shops in the States. What do you think the chances are of me finding some things I gave away when we moved. LOL
