You don't really realize what foods you’re going to miss until you actually get into country. For instance you think you’ll crave pizza and end up craving salad. Well we all were craving some Mexican food and Cinco de Mayo was the perfect excuse. Our amazing chef for the group, Josh, worked in the kitchen for hours on nachos, pulled pork, tortilla shells, bean mixtures, and guacamole. It was a drool inducing result. We stuffed ourselves with nachos and tortillas and it was the most satisfying meal in a very long time. Thanks Josh!!
Our amazing PCV Madi made a homemade piñata for our group! Unfortunately nobody could wait for the actually hitting of it and kept ransacking it for candy but no matter. Thanks Madi darling! It added to the party.
Lusia’s is built on a gorgeous lagoon where the water is an interesting mixture of warm water with cold pockets that’ll hit you every now and then. They have a deck built out over the water that you can sit out on and jump off into the water. It’s currently owned by Jim, a former Peace Corps volunteer (from 2 or 3 groups ago I think). Fun to hear stories about previous groups.
