  • Wonky thoughts: Dueling CanalsToday's People's Climate Change march in New York City seems like the perfect time for a wonky post about how challenging building a canal can be to environmental justice.

  • Leaving the La Mariposa Nest For two months I was fortunate to call the tiny barrio of San Juan de la Concepcion home and was graced by La Mariposa's kind and excellent teachers, its staff and countless animals (I will spare you the endless photo Posted by BettinaNYC in Breaking Away in 2014 | Aug 4, 2014

Instead of Posted by BettinaNYC in Breaking Away in 2014 | Jun 12, 2014
  • Libertad for an anteaterOur stay in Nicaragua is not just Spanish lessons. We recently helped the staff of La Mariposa return an anteater to the wild. Someone had dropped it off here (La Mariposa is an animal rescue, too) noticing it was injured. Posted by BettinaNYC in Breaking Away in 2014 | Jun 12, 2014
  • File under lesson learnedIt took a couple of days for us to realize this, but when the locals we pass on the street respond to our "buenas dias" with "adios" they aren't blessing us. They are saying goodbye. Which actually, makes sense, no? Posted by BettinaNYC in Breaking Away in 2014 | Jun 1, 2014
  • Part Three Begins![center][/center] I had read that all of Nicaragua wakes up at 5:00 am. My first morning here proved that tenfold. It was a Saturday just shy of 4:45am and the sounds of a Posted by BettinaNYC in Breaking Away in 2014 | May 30, 2014
