Nicaragua Treating Us Good

So this weekend was a long one... We had so much fun though. We had to take a 2.5 hr bus ride to Managua, but it wasn't like a luxury tour bus, it was crappier than an old school bus. But besides the fact that there was about 20 people to much on the bus and we had to wake up at 4:30am to catch the bus 45 min later it was amazing. While I'm here I'm going to look at the whole experience and realize how amazing it is that I get to do something like this. Well here's a few pictures from this weekend. You'll see our friends, the assembly hall, and the insiders view on the bus that we were on. Enjoy!! Hopefully I'll be able to put more pix up soon. Adios!

Just a quick farewell lunch

Today is the day, We are finally leaving after delaying the trip by a couple days. So I decided to make some quick tofu wraps for the fam.
Tortilla Wrap
Organic Gmo-free ToFu
Coconut oil
Black Pepper
Lime Juice

1st off, I cut the ToFu into thin strips (3). Then sautéed the tofu in a little bit of Coconut oil. Sprinkled the 3 seasonings-black pepper, rosemary, and oregano-on top of the pieces of tofu. Sautéed until a little crispy.

Then, I just cut up all the vegetables put them on the wrap. And then once the tofu was done I put that on the top and Voila! A delicious, protein equipped fast lunch.

Let the Packing Begin

So I decided that I would start packing today. I'm leaving in 3 days, so I thought it was time for this process to begin. You know as you pack you think of things you still need to buy or put in your luggage, so it becomes a pretty decent sized list... Well I already have a few items on that list and I just started packing. I wonder how long that side-list will get...

I know all this packing, emotional goodbyes, and work will be worth it in the end. I just can't wait for that feeling to come.
