This TuesdayÂs radio show will feature all 4 of my favorite categories of expats. WeÂll visit once again with Donna Tabor who heads up a Granada and Pittsburgh based NGO, Building New Hope. Donna as you may remember from last week was instrumental in establishing the Chavalos CafÃ© which was featured in an international documentary a few years ago.
After Donna weÂll talk with another Granada resident, John-Marc Gallegher. John-Marc and his wife Janice are expat entrepreneurs and have restored numerous old Spanish Colonial homes in Granada over the past 8 years. They also have a property management business and run a riding stable and farm a few miles outside of town.
In the second hour weÂll talk with Garry and Lynn Wright who are considering a move to Nicaragua for part of the year. As Canadians, lets take a guess which part of the year they plan to be in Nicaragua. GarryÂs brother Murray owns a home in Nicaragua at Gran Pacifica and enjoys a fantastic beach and golf style retirement. Garry and Lynn are still deciding and weÂll ask them about the kinds of considerations and factors going into that decision.
Also, we have Amanda back for the weekly Expat Kids segment. Amanda will be interviewing her friend Maddie Kelleher from McLean Virginia. This was MaddieÂs second trip down to visit and she is now planning a trip back next year to work with Girl Scouts in Nicaragua on a reforestation project. As youÂll see from the picture, she enjoyed some pottery making as well.
