A week or so ago we received word that we'll be spending our time and holding our clinic in in Leon, Nicaragua. It's always exciting when we find out exactly where we'll serve in the country, plus it's nice to be able to answer the reoccuring question of "where will you be going in Nicaragua?" with an answer other than the usual "we're not sure".
Thanks to Wikitravel, here's what little we know about Leon thus far:
Situated in western Nicaragua, Leon is the second most important city after Managua. Blessed with graceful old architecture and a fascinating history, Leon has played a pivotal role in the country's history many times over. Modern day Leon may not be as important as it once was, but it serves as home to the National University which has proved to be a constant injection of life to the city.
Leon, here we come!
