Visit to Teustepe

A few weeks ago Marisa and I had the chance to visit Nate Abrahams and Liz Weidner fellow MCC workers living in Teustepe, Nicaragua. Teustepe is a small town about 2 hours by bus from Managua.

We learned:

  • That you can make delicious pizza in a toaster oven
  • A bit about their work with sustainable agriculture and community organizing. Specifically we went to visit a biodigestor they were helping build on a pig farm. The smell was lovely:)
  • We visited the patron saint of Teustepe

We had a great time relaxing, eating tasty food, and catching up with them. It was really good to be able share and empathize with each other about all the funny, rewarding, and frustrating experiences of living and working in a different culture.
