Thread: New Brigadista Effort for the Coast

  1. #1

    Default New Brigadista Effort for the Coast

    Arielka was recruited by the brigadistas yesterday to help with en effort to the coast.

    When exactly it starts is uncertain, but as they sketched it out to her:

    two "American" planes would fly daily from Managua to Puerto Cabezas and return with the teams.
    So, the teams would actually "live" in Managua, and commute daily to Puerto Cabezas.

    She would be doing her coordinator/translator job,,
    similar to what she does when the brigadista medical teams have visited Nicaragua in the past.

    If it happens they will offer her a contract for 15 or 30 days,, at a pay rate of $40 daily.

    As you can imagine,, she is very excited about the opportunity.
    I had linked her earlier to some of the activity by the Air National Guard after Felix.

    Miskito Alan described language on the Coast as "babble", and in last decade has become even more so, mash up of spanish, creole, english, and Indian dialicts.
