P.S. Dad, we can see the Monbacho Volcano from here. We were in Granada today.
Elena, I was wondering what you did after you dumped me off 18 months ago. Try not to keep the gas on all night again. I hate gas. Luckily we don’t have it in the houses here. Well, we don’t cook anyway. I loved the mom is an angel, dad is a saint...super funny... but it’s true. I love the way you write Lenny!
Mom, I will cook you some gallo pinto...mmmmmm. It’s rice and beans, that’s it. You cook the beans and the rice and then mix them together... mmmmmm...not too hard. I found these cookie things this week that I might bring home for Dad. It is a regular butter cookie with marshmallows on top covered in coconut. Sounds like a Nicaraguan snowball. You could look up some Nica recipes like gallo pinto, indio viejo, or the drink arroz con piña - which is a pineapple and rice drink. We drink oatmeal and barley too...gotta love it here. Actually the barley drink is my fave. It is barley with cinnamon... really tasty! It feels so surreal to think I will be home with you so soon. It will be awesome.
