Care packages home
I would like to mail packages of stuff that is typically Nicaraguan back home to friends of mine up north who have been kind to me over the years so I am making a list of things that can sit in the mail for a few weeks without going bad, that is rather inexpensive, and that will get through the customs departments of Nicaragua and Canada.
Here are some the things on my list:
San Sebastian coffee, my favourite
Guava jam, a locally made delight
Miel de jocote, which you can't get outside Central America
Locally made jewelry
Some very small ceramics from the artisans' village of San Juan Del Oriente
A slingshot for my nephew that he can use to molest the neighbours' cats
I welcome other suggestions.
