It is our first full day in Nicaragua. It is so hot we only have sheets on you beds and most if not all of us never really used them. The humidity clings to your skin as if it’s life depends upon choking the life out of you. Luckily the vans have AC, and the drivers kept it on blast the entire time we were there.
Despite having a late night it was rather easy to get up about 5:30 am in order to leave at about 6 ish. The sun likes to rise around 5:00, and I have always found it easier to rise with the sun. We first went to Leon to pick up our guides and our supplies. We then traveled about another hour to make it to the Volcano. The hike was only about a mile long, but with about a 20 pound board on your back and a steep climb it felt like 5. my legs were noodles by the time we got to the top.
