2016 Election

If we can vote as Peace Corps Volunteers all the way from Nicaragua, you have no excuse. Exercise your right.  Regardless of the election, the candidates, the outcome: vote.

Dicho for Being Undecided

It’s election season!  While true for the US, it’s also true for Nicaragua.  As an apolitical organization, whose tenure in the country only lasts for as long as we have the invitation of the government, we are instructed not to give our opinion on Nicaraguan politics. Therefore, if this dicho gets directed our way, we must be doing something right:

Ni sos chicha ni limonada – You are neither a fermented, raspberry-flavored corn beverage nor lemonade.

Basically, this means you’re unaffiliated, or on the fence.  If Ken Bone’s overnight celebrity status extends to Nicaragua, this dicho could be used to help orient the crowd to why he was selected to be on the debate stage in the first place.  It can also be used for someone who changes their opinions on an issue.  For so many reasons, this is the perfect dicho for this October.
