As much as we love traveling, I’m also a huge fan of nesting. I enjoy having a place to call my own from which I can then explore the wonders of wherever we live. During training we stayed in the houses of our host families, and now here in Estelí we have a little casita to ourselves in the backyard of a yet another wonderful host family.
It may be small, but it has everything we need, and a little more.

I love how big the ferns can grow here!
A view of our common space and shared back yard. It’s so nice!
You know you’re jealous of our big screen.
But you might actually be jealous (if your a fellow Nica PCV) of our hot water shower. Three options: Icy cold, boiling hot, or a slight combination of the two.
We managed to fit all of our clothes in this one little wardrobe. There’s something to be said for living with less.
You’d be amazed at the delicious food we can make with this bad boy.
We like to dance a lot and this little friend is fantastic. Especially when “la luz se fue!”

It may be small, but it has everything we need.
Here’s to making this house a home.
