Other things

Last saturday I went to a ‘Competencia de Ninos de Trajes de Bano’ (bathing suit competition for kids). My host-sister wanted to compete, she’s six. She was really excited and did her dance for me and practiced posing before we left. The kids competing were ages 2-10. It was cute, and some of the kids could really dance. Boys competed too, mostly break dancing. Beauty pageants are apparently really popular here. It was in the mall.

I also went to a Quinceneara two weekends ago. Chris’s host-sister turned fifteen and invited all of us. All the little girls were dancing and we danced for a little too.

Alyssa and I are doing our final project here on youth activism, we have a meeting this afternoon with Juventud Sandinista (the Sandinista youth) and Groupo Puente, a youth organization more critical of government.

It’s also really hot here now. Probably the hottest weather I’ve ever felt ever. It says 97 but it must be hotter. People are saying it’s because the rains are coming, but not for another month.
