Posted by Gran Pacifica on Feb 12, 2013 5:18:22 PM

On this week's show of Mike's Gringo Life, Mike interviews a variety of folks about life in the region and work in the region. Lindsey Stenberg, a former intern, talks about her work at La Chureca as part of the Fabretto Foundation. La Chureca is the municipal dump in Managua and many families make a living scavenging for recyclables there. Lindsey is working with kids and moms to help create an educational infrastructure and support network in a seemingly impossible situation. Amanda Cobb then jumps in with another Expat Kids segment interviewing Alec and Lauren, who are visiting Nicaragua for the first time. Alec and Lauren enjoyed a week in Nicaragua swimming at the beaches of Gran Pacifica, zip lining through the jungle, and hiking the cloud forests in the mountains listening to howler monkeys. Later in the show Mike interviews Jose Levia, who runs Wake Forest University's affiliate campus here in Managua. Jose is in charge of Casa Dingledine, and talks about Wake Forest's programs and how he finds the experience of working for the university. In the final segment, Mike talks with Robert Kroesen who manages Teak Plantations in Panama. Teak is a popular plantation tree because of rapid growth in the region and the value of the hardwoods produced when harvested. Tune into the show by Clicking Here.[gallery]
