Missing Central America

Thursday, June 30, 2022
I am missing Central America! Since being home, things have just seemed EASY-- like everyone speaking the same language, top-notch infrastructure, etc... a little shock after three months gone. Being surrounded by nature and the KINDEST people, along with the challenge of navigating everyday life in a foreign place is what I miss most! I felt like I was always learning and growing from the locals.
