  1. Comfort food

    Yuca, beans, and quiquisqe are my new comfort foods. There's an indescribably warm and satisfying feeling I get when I eat them, like no other food can provide. Mac and cheese is nice, but these Nica staples are more basic and elemental.

    Getcha some!

  2. Use TRN on your iPhone or Android

    The app is $2.99 at the app store. If you point your iPhone's browser to TRN a screen pops up to take you straight to the app store to purchase "Tapatalk." (TRN gets nothing, it's an app for forum software in general.)

  4. I walked to Pali today

    My wife had some lunch meat brought up from Managua by a cousin who lives close to that Bavarian Deli place. However, even after going out shopping twice with her cousin after she got here, she still failed to procure sandwich bread, mustard, or cheese.

    As lunch time came and went, and the farthest the "What are we eating for lunch" conversation went was that my daughter wasn't hungry and my wife was just going to eat leftovers. I didn't want the lunch meat to go bad (it ...

  5. About town

    Today's mission was to go take out some money from the ATM so we could pay the workers who have finished the septic tank rebuild. My wife requested I pick up some ron con pasa ice cream at the Eskimo shop while I'm out. And since our daughter was bored I invited her and the dog along.

    It's five blocks to the Bank Corner. On the last block before the corner, something in a shop caught my eye. I'd dropped my pocket knife while riding a horse out on the farm, and there were two knives ...
