Last Friday I got invited to my 1st Nicaraguan bbq. I wasn't sure what to expect but it actually turned out really good and fun. I also rode on a motorcycle for my first time here. Loved it! I felt truly Nica because my friend Roberto gave me a ride while his 3 year old son sat in front and I had 2 big containers in my hand. Sooooo Nican!

Anyway, it was Roberto with his wife Martha and son Samuel, Richard with his wife Leila and son Richard, Ezekiel with his wife Diana, Shelina, and I. We did it at Ezekiel and Diana's house.

I'd have to say it was really normal. Heavy on the meats but dessert was missing! Nica libres running freely (that's a Cuba libre which is rum and coke plus a splash of lime; but we make it with Nican rum). The best part is when we were all done eating and stuffed like pigs the general consensus was to dance off our bbq. Now, at first I thought this was a bad idea and would just result in the kids barfing everywhere but it turned out to be the best idea! We shook our money makers and Leila showed me some new salsa moves I can't wait to try out.

  1. Hey, Squirrel! I finally got a chance to catch up with all the posts. I didn't know that you got to help with baptism. Very awesome. The baptism has always been one of my favorite parts of any assembly, and I inevitably end up crying because it makes me reflect on my own dedication and how much I really do love Jehovah. The BBQ and motorcycle rides sound like fun. The turtle from the previous posts... not so much. But we live and we learn! You'll have to make up a few Nica Libres when you come to visit. Is it wrong that it makes me think of Nacho Libre? Love ya!
