I am beginning to understand how much I truly take for granted. After spending 2 days in NIca, there are so many little things I miss.

If you’re reading this back home, please stop and take a minute to count your lucky stars that you have access to hot, long showers; constant running water; a washing machine; a toilet that you can put toilet paper in rather than in the garbage and not having to fish toilet paper out of the toilet with a clothes hangar when you forgot; and, most of all, a cold glass of water with ice. I am disgusted to discover how much I have taken for granted in my life, especially since even what I am experiencing this week is absolute luxury compared to what many Nicaraguans experience their whole lives.
