Hurricane Otto

On Thanksgiving Day 2016, a Category 2 hurricane came ashore along the Nicaragua/Costa Rica border.  This historic storm forced Peace Corps Nicaragua to consolidate all of our volunteers in Managua, as they take our safety very seriously.  Luckily, for us, it went farther south.  And since we were already in Managua, we were all able to attend a nice Thanksgiving meal at the home of an embassy or Peace Corps staff member.  For the third year in a row, we were blessed to attend the home of our second-in-command and chef extroidonaire, Miguel Lindhout.  We stuffed ourselves silly and felt at home. Hopefully it will be our one and only Thanksgiving during a hurricane.  One is enough for our lifetimes.
