Living in Nicaragua is a very different experience for me and after 2 months I've learned that there are a lot of things I thought I couldn't live without that I've been doing just fine without.
Never thought I'd get over Starbucks, but some how I've stumbled upon a decent substitute, (no not Dunkin Donuts) The Chocolate Cafeteria.
My truck: Although I miss it and sometimes it would make life easier. It's rare that I miss driving. I like to walk here and I've had the opportunity to ride a bike and a Motorcycle. But walking is still my favorite and so far the safest. There is the buses too but I wouldn't rate them as choice for transpo. A child of the bus system I have a hard time getting on them as an adult. Yes, it could just be psychological...so?
My phone: I still miss what it could do but amazingly enough I can survive without it. Granted, I don't have the kind of life that needs a phone like that anymore. I have to say I like the pace that my life has come to. I know its not for everyone but for those of you who haven't tried it yet, I say, get out the map and lay your finger anywhere and try it. You might be surprised.
