From Costa Rica

This brief post is only to say that I am well and enjoying my time in Central America.  I have some stories to share, so stay tuned.  Here’s a photo of one of the places I’ve been.  It is the island of Ometepe in Nicaragua.  It is in the middle of Lake Nicaragua, which is probably the size of Lake Michigan in North America.  The Island has 2 volcanoes.  I was there with university students from Pennsylvania, and they set up a medical clinic and worked at an orphanage.  The ferry boat is the only way to/from the island, and as you can see, it isn’t very big.  The name of the volcano in the background is Conception.  More to come…
