Day 12, February 24 (Thursday)

Today is the last real day of the trip. We had a later start and did some last minute souvenir shopping and packing in the early morning. We then went to a center that makes prosthetic limbs. The center only employs three people and can make around 100 prosthetics per year. Its funding is also supported by the Polus Center.

We had a last meal in Leon and took off for Managua. We stopped at a market quickly on the way and continued on to the Best Western which was right across the street from the airport. This hotel is luxury compared to the hostel! We went for a quick swim, then had a nice dinner and a debriefing session led by Juan.

Finally, we had one last card game by the pool and said goodbye to the three leaving early in the morning (Naomi, Marianne, and Dr. Doubeni).
