We left for Nicaragua on Saturday, March 7th and made it to the airport for our 5pm flight. We had a three hour flight to Houston, and then an additional 2.5 hours to Managua, Nicaragua, where we arrived late at night (around 12:30am). After clearing through customs, our group finally met up with our Global Brigades staff members and coordinators. After loading everyone's suitcases onto the trucks, along with the 30 check-in suitcases filled with medicine, we began our 2.5 hour drive from Managua to our compound located in Esteli, a smaller town in the central part of Nicaragua. We reached our compound around 5am, tired but excited for the next day.
