D-Lab: Energy had a really great trip to Nicaragua. Almost everyone is headed home today and last night we had delicious food at a fritanga to celebrate a long, wonderful week.
I led the group to blueEnergy, on the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua. This part of the country is quite distinct from the Pacific coast, in that it's a very mixed culture of indigenous groups (of which there are many including Rama and Moskito), Creoles, Mestizos, and a very few white people doing development work. Common languages include English, Spanish, Creole, and Moskito, and you'll hear all on the street.
