Saturday, Dec 4 – Leon and coming home
One more meal of gallo pinto (rice and beans) and fruit, then we were out to do some site seeing in Leon. The cathedral in Leon is the largest in Central America. The large murals have been restored since the last time I was there and look incredible!
Julio was there to take us through the market as Justin and I did a little souvenir shopping. I am always amazed at the different fruits and vegetables. Usually grossed out by the meat aisle, but it is always interesting to see people selling raw meat just sitting out on the counter.
Loaded up our luggage back at the hotel and headed into Managua. After a couple hours we arrived at the airport. Checked our bags and picked up our boarding passes. The airport has a Tip Top, which is the Nicaraguan version of KFC.
After making it through security and a pat down, we settled in for a 4 hour plane ride to Atlanta. Darwin was the gentleman beside me and he is pastors a Spanish speaking congregation in Tennessee. Amazing testimony about how he escaped Nicaragua as a boy when all the kids his age were being sent to the front lines.
Our second flight from Atlanta to Charlotte was very smooth. It was hard to go from temperatures in the 80s to the 30s, but it brought us back to reality. God was incredibly faithful to Justin and I the whole week. We look forward to going again soon.
