Nicaragua, Day 3 – Mariselda

20121110-230150.jpg

Today we bought a 10-year old girl a bike with an extended seat so her dad can take her to physical therapy twice a week. She has polio, is so cute, and is very intelligent. She’s 10-years old, loves reading, and math is her favorite subject.

The picture is of Ever, a guy we met today who helped us find Mariselda and buy the things we needed. He rode on the back of our rented motorcycle for 14 kilometers to go to town, did the deal so we’d get it for cheap, and held the bike for the whole ride back.

I’m way too tired . . . I guess you’ll just have to wait for the full story when I get back. 🙂 Thanks so much for making this happen.
