Situation updated

We have a place to live. It is in a safe part of Jinotega. The house is owned by Andy, Tere's nephew. The police station is right down the street. We will be living as if that was our house. We will have a key and can come and go as we please. We have been told that this is not a burden on them. Andy owns the Coffee Plantation we visited about a month ago. We will be moving over there tomorrow or Friday. They have internet at the house so we will be able to communicate the same as we have been. Everyday will be just as it has been. Wednesday next week we are traveling to Managua because Tara our friend from the states is flying in. We have planned a week vacation for ourselves. Here is the details about it. We also will be having someone from Nicaragua with us everyday of the trip, his name is Insidro, he is a friend and works at the hotel. Also, Rodney will be taking us to Granada and possibly spending the time with us there. When we travel to Ometepe Andy and his friend will be visiting a uncle who owns one of hotels on the island.
