At the beginning of this month, I returned to Nicaragua for the fifth time, leading a group of Bridgewater State University Students on a study tour entitled Geography of Coffee. The trip web page includes a few photos and stories, with a link to almost a thousand more photos and links to similar pages for the previous tours.
As always, I missed home but enjoyed time with our wonderful BSU students and with many Nicaraguan friends -- farmers, tour guides, restaurant and hotel workers, activists, and others -- who make this journey so meaningful.
