I'm going to Central America and I want to shout it from the mountain tops.
Coming soon: My debut as a columnist from Nicaragua! Next week I'll be flying to Matagalpa, Nicaragua, where I will be volunteering with an organization called Grounds for Health. The team I'll be working with is composed of doctors, pathologists, and lab technicians. The goals are to raise awareness about cervical cancer, perform annual exams for women and train locals to be proactive in health care and disease prevention. I'M SO EXCITED. And scared. I'm 88 percent excited and 12 percent scared. But I've got my malaria prophylaxis, my Ben's 30 percent deet bug spray, my 35mm and a fedora - I should be fine. Stay tuned to hear about the adventure! I hope I have internet access. Peace!
