    Default Cultural insight for Newbies..

    Newbies always want to know how it is different living in Nic as compared to the US.

    Well, here's one example: In America a bricklayer will never use your dog's water bowl to mix cement. I kid you not, never, never, never..

    Another thing I noticed but never could quite explain...
    In the United States we are told you need 1 sentence to complete a thought. Here in Nicaragua it seems you need 4 sentences.
    Just saying...
