Anna is living and working in La Garnacha, a campesino community just south of the city of Estelí. Her host family, whom she describes as “wonderful,” runs an organic farm in this mountainous area. She writes, “Most days of the week I hike down to the farm, work [in the field] until early afternoon, and have a 30-40 hike back up to my house.” On Fridays she accompanies her host father in to the farmer’s market in Estelí, where they sell the produce grown on the farm. “I have learned a lot about agriculture [and] living without running water,” she says, and she is also “attempting to learn to ride a horse.” She reports that there are “lots of cool things to see around my house, like sculptures, caves, a waterfall, and lookouts from mountaintops.”
