Nicaragua 2010

 We are getting some more information about our school-building project in Nicaragua.  The village we will be living and working in is called Mata de Caña.  It has a population of 226 and no electricity.  You can see some more information in the file below.  Also, here are some photographs of Nicaragua that I stole off the web.  We’ll be in Nicaragua for Thanksgiving 2010! Come visit!

Fill Er Up

In Argentina, this is how many people get a gas refill in their cars. Compressed Natural Gas refill, that is. Perhaps 25 percent of cars on the road, and most taxis use the stuff. And they’ve been using it for years. Many Ford Falcons on the road down here run on it. Pretty cool.
