Dr. Elise Harb’s Nicaragua Travel Journal, January 2014: Days Nine Through Ten

Day 9


Hi, all. Finally in Corn Island!! A beautiful final end to the trip. We arrived via a little 12 seater plane (see video of the day) and although the whole ride we were socked in with clouds as we approached the island, the view emerged (see photo of the day). We are staying at a resort on the beach fully equipped with coconut palms, hammocks and, of course, the Caribbean beach! We went to clinic for the last time today and saw another 200 patients, making the total 2,500 – meager compared to last year’s 6,000 – but 2,500 more people than if we never came!

Tonight, having my favorite, ceviche and sopa de mariscos (see pic of the day), then relaxing and getting some rest.

Tomorrow is a day off on the island- so, beach day!! Until then…

Day 10



Final day was great!! Started with a late wake up, then a big plate of local fruit, then all day at the beach (see pics of the day). Walks and kayaking were wonderful explorations (including a close call with a fishing boat). Ceviche for lunch and sunset-watching rounded out the day.

Not too shabby! And to top it off, managed to miss a good snow storm! Tonight, a final dinner with the crew – the students have been a lot of fun- then off tomorrow morning for a full day of traveling.

Signing off from Corn Island, Nicaragua….
