Today is Nicaragua Independence Day we had the privilege to go to the communities and celebrate with them this important date. Following is some pics of the parade (here are more) and here you will be able to read about some of the history of this day. It was such a hot day but the students were so proud. They brought in a band from Jinotepe to perform. These schools don't have the resources to have their own....but it was equally enjoyed. The schools marched both in front and behind the band and proudly with their school flags. What a wonderful day to get out!!
A little example of what the bands sound like here!
