I can’t even begin to believe that it’s my last weekend here in Granada, Nicaragua. I almost start crying anytime a student says anything to me. Like, anything. I mean, who’s going to ask me to sharpen their pencil after I leave?! Nobody, that’s who. I’m going to miss them so much.

My few months here have definitely been too short. BUT, I’m looking forward to my upcoming travels, which I’ll reveal next week.

Here are some articles that’ll go great with your green beer this weekend:
