Rain, rain go away!

So apparently if it’s raining all the schools shut. I got a taxi to school this morning coz of the rain, and also coz my team was 2 men down. However my taxi got to a big puddle on the bad roads and he refused to go any further. I then had to cross streams of water and walk past some bulls to get back on the road to school. Luckily a horse and cart (yes my new fave transport!) was about to cross the river of water which was blocking the road, so they let me climb on and took me the rest of the way to the school. Arrived at school. No people, gates locked. Lovely! Got the bus home.

I don’t know if you can see but the man in the photo is riding a bike, has his child perched on the front, his shopping tied to the back and on both handle bars, whilst holding a massive brolly. This is quite normal in Nicaragua!
