On Thursday February 7, theÂ Mikes Gringo LifeÂ show features the Expat Kids as the opening segment. Emily Cobb, 8 years old, not to be outdone by her big sister Amanda age 12, wants to take on the role of host for the show and interviews her big sister. They discuss their new school, the Nordic School in Managua and life in general as expat kids.
In the 2nd and 3rd segments, Mike interviews Pam Bruce and Pat Schwartz who participated in Gran Pacifica's day of social service with theÂ Fabretto Foundation. Â Pat also describes a medical tourism procedure she received while here and raves about the process and quality of the care she received.
In the 4th segment, Mike interviews Donnie Iris, a Pittsburgher known world wide for such hits as "Ah Leah" and "Love is Like a Rock" reaching #9 on the Billboards. Donnie enjoyed a fantastic week atÂ Gran PacificaÂ and a day in Granada touring the Mombacho Cigar Factory. Donnie plans to return for a cigar tour of Nicaragua later in the year and will perhaps drag along some former Steelers and other fun loving folks to come along. If you'd like to join him, let me know. In the mean time, tune in for some great stories and fun.
