ooooo, this is interesting
Hmm, you can have your own little blog right here on Nica Living? How super! I think I'll just write about my family's travel and time in Nicaragua.
A short synopsis about us: I was born in the U.S. to Nicaraguan parents. Spent the first three years of life in Nicaragua and then moved back to the U.S. A few years ago, I decided to visit Nicaragua with my wife and daughter, spent a few weeks and I was enthralled. I felt very much at home in Nicaragua and it was then I decided to establish some roots there again. Job and such things kept me from doing much for a few years, but now I have the opportunity to seriously look at Nicaragua as a place of business and residence for me and my family. My wife is a mid-west girl that felt severe culture shock simply moving to the southwest with me. Nicaragua is a bit overwhelming for her, but she did enjoy our last trip and we'll spend more time 'living like a nica' on this next visit.
We are going for 3 weeks in January (2008) for a little vacationing and visiting family, but mostly for me to explore some business opportunities.
Because of the geographic distance between my 'home town' (in Nueva Segovia) and Managua and other such places of business, I decided to have a car there and am shipping one from the U.S. It does seem like a rather silly thing to do, and here is the forum topic about it:
My recounting of health and travel vaccines are in comments to this post.
I guess I'll chronicle our trip and such things on this blog!
