You Know You've Been Here A Year When...

You know you've lived in Nicaragua for over a year when....

--on the way to school in the morning, your 5 year old and his friend discuss what happens after you have a car wreck or hit a pedestrian

--your daughter brings a friend home from school and never speaks English the whole time they play

--you no longer think twice about passing a school bus with blinking lights (retired school buses from the U.S. become public transportation here)

--you smell and/or see smoke and never once think that something important may be burning

--you wake up in the morning and think it feels "chilly" at a cool 75 degrees and you put on a sweatshirt
