Alpha Romeo 6 has rocked into the little village of La Colmena in Nicaragua in style, bearing gifts of pineapples and watermelons for our soon-to-be families.
We were welcomed with open arms and our new favourite meal has quickly become rice beans and tortillas! We have all thrown ourselves into Nicaraguan life; grinding maize, picking beans and milking cows.
Meanwhile the work on the community centre is underway, including our expansion project which consists of a flower garden and a very deep long drop! We have even begun a side project of clearing land in preparation of building a house for a local family and have found two new recruits in the form of baby rabbits which the family named 'Hazel' and 'Josseling.'

The children are learning more English everyday as we have been teaching them some essential vocabulary such as greetings and how to say rice, beans and chicken!

But it’s not all hard work here in this mountain village as we have still found time to party with the locals for Holly and Chloe's 'madres' birthday. This project is going to be something the village truly can be proud of and we can't wait for the celebrations when all is complete!
