Patriots 19-0! Super Bowl Champs...in San Gregorio, Nicaragua




Yes folks, that's right. Your New England Patriots are Super Bowl Champs once again. Unfortunately this is true only in the parallel universe of donations to the 3rd world. Zach and I scouted out the location of the hats and tees donated after the Pats lost to the Giants a few weeks ago. We rode into San Gregorio and quickly enlisted some local agents (shown in pics) to help us buy a few hats and t-shirts in an attempt to rewite history. It was all in fun, we gave the boys a few extra bucks and some food for helping us out. The town is the definition of extreme poverty, we figured for the money we paid for the Pats SB gear, each family could buy a lot more stuff in the long run.

Backpacks for School Children!





This past Monday, Justin and I went to a local San Juan elementary school and helped to distribute backpacks full of school supplies (360 - which we packed on Saturday) and enjoyed interacting with the kids who ranged in age from 3-14.  All of the supplies were donations from Morgan's Rock, as well as guests who stay at the hotel - a program initiated by Gladis, our friend who manages the hotel.

Getting to know the locals...





Everyone has been incredibly friendly and welcoming, including the local authorities.  We've hit up the local bar, The Iguana, a number of times already since our arrival...
