Photo/Cultural Tour 
Nicaragua
Trip leader & photographer Rosalind Kealiher, Dekaios Designs,  just returned from Nicaragua with the group, check out the daily trip blog for a beautiful glimpse of their experience. 

 

"I got the true flavor of what Nicaraguan family togetherness is by visiting these homes. I also saw the difference between them and how we are in the north. They seem to have much more love and inclusiveness. They seem to be saying..."You are a part of us, now." That felt really good!! "
