Thank you so much for all of the effort you have put into this trip.   
The more people "we" as a club know in Nicaragua, the better.  Thanks  
also for your knowledgable advice for general travel.  As far as being  
unclear about what "we" andy and I want, this is unclear to us as  
well.  We have stated for the last several weeks that we are paying  
our way and using our time in order to go to Nicaragua and gather the  
information that will assist the club's visit in June.  We have done  
much brainstorming with the group and come up with an excellent list  
of tasks for San Diego.  We asked for the group to be our brains.  If  
you can tell us what you want us to do and help us to understand how  
to do it (anything, including contacts, research, etc.) this is why we  
are going.  We have less than 24 hours in Managua, and we are very  
comfortable going it alone; however, if there is something that  
anybody wants us to do in Managua please tell us and we will try to  
the best of our ability to do it. and please be specific (not "meet  
with the people there"). if we met with them, what do you want us to  
say?  We will hopefully be checking our emails periodically; so, we  
will be keeping everyone updated, and please give us specific advice  
or instructions or ask specific questions.

We will do the best possible job representing UVM while we are down there.
We leave in two hours. Wish us luck!!!

Thanks for your comments
