Voyager pour grandir (31)
After a few days of rains and clouds in Cuchumatanes Mountains in Guatemala, the sun finally appears. In the village of Lanvin, perched on a headland looking out in the valley, we take out our fine motor activity kit. We have great laughter during the session of Wikki Stix thinking of our last activities in Salvador.
We find a place to shower and safely park in the streets of Leon, Nicaragua. Rather noisy in the evening and morning, but as we spent several days at the beach, a little action attracts us. And nothing can stop Camille from smiling.
A sunset is indescribable for us. There are endless views of mountains and volcanoes in Nicaragua, where you can even see a volcano in El Salvador! Camille takes time to enjoy the moment and also managed to capture the beauty of the newly discovered landscape "finca" near Esteli.
In Choluteca, Honduras, we are introduced to the Arch. These communities, created by Jean Vanier, can be found in many countries and accommodate people with disabilities. Philipe has adopted Camille. Camille fits in perfectly with the group. She helps with tasks, goes to the workshop, feasts on "Friol" that is served at almost every meal. Really, one wonders if she isn’t Honduran!
Nothing pressing, no appointments. We have all day to wait for the bus to come ... possibly to bring us to the next town. On the island of Ometepe, there is more time in the day. There is Lake Nicaragua and us. And the day ends when you fall down from fatigue after a busy day. Long live the holidays :-)
Well, our van is down so we rent a car. An adventure of inns and restaurants for a week with Thu Hanh, who visits with us for a month. But oh no! A tire puncture! Yes! But we are lucky, there is a pinchazo (puncture repair service on every street corner).
Ah! The modes of transportation…After crowded buses and the “speed” of Choluteca, and riding a "lancha" to cross on the island of "Del tiger", we take a touktouk to get to Playa Grande, randomly chosen... Camille is excited and doesn’t want to get down. For sure, it's just slower than Gina! ;-)
