On a cloudy day, La Costena Airlines carries me from Managua to Bluefields on the Caribbean coast as I watch the beautiful patchwork quilt of Nicaragua unfold below us. Nicaragua is about the size of New York state and the plane is about half way to the east coast.

With what I hope is the last heavy load, we left Bluefields at 6:00 a.m. to carry out "sticks" for the roof and the last two sheets of Plycem. Because of the weight the boat trip seemed endless instead of the usual quick travel of the eight miles. Once again the pontoon boat has proven its worth.
