As winter break comes to an end I am filled with excitement to head back to Managua. I am ready to get back and see my friends, enjoy the warm weather, and get back to work. Unfortunately, the start of this semester reminds me that I only have four more months in Nicaragua. I have found a thesis director and made plans to finish my degree at my home school. That said, I also have to put serious thought into the chances of me staying in Managua after programs end. Spending time back in the states made me realize how much I fell in love with Nicaragua. Whether I stay or go Managua will always feel like home.
