Weekly Photo Challenge: Come Together Right Now


The Weekly Photo Challenge is Converge. The Nicaraguan people have converged or assembled for many things recently. Using some of John Lennon’s lyrics for “Come Together”,this is a visual story of the ways in which the Nicaraguans converge.

                 One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
                 Come together right now over me

  1. One thing Mary and I have really learned about our neighbors here in a small coastal town in Ecuador is the strong sense of community that our friends have for our little town. Virtually everything is done as a community. My new favorite saying is, “Yo soy San Clemente – pata salada” – Which roughly means I am a San Clemente-ite – my feet are salty or I have planted my feet in the salt of San Clemente. Sounds like you have the same type of community there. Great post!
