Yummy Yucca Bammies! They are like potato latkes...shredded yucca root, eggs, garlic, onions and salt, fried in soy oil (unfortunately). I love our gas stove but it doesn't have a low setting so I didn't want to use my olive oil I brought from the states. The dragonfruit drink again with a picture of the fruit below. A passion fruit and some eggs, likely from Managua even though many of our neighbors have hens that are laying. Our 3 hens are laying one egg total every few days so we've been buying most of what we eat. Our water went out yesterday so we had to have someone come all the way from Managua to fix a blown fuse...we have a large water tank with an electric pump that fills it. It cost $75 for his time and labor and $30 for the pump fuse. I hope to spend some time relaxing in the hammock today (not just posing for this picture :)) but we'll see how long the loud boom box and advertisement vehicle strolls around our neighborhood. For those in the states, I Hope you are all having a nice fall weekend.
Rachelle Price, ND
I am a naturopathic family physician, a graduate of naturopathic medical school at Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. After many years of feeling a call on my heart to pursue further education in health care to better serve in the developing world, I attended naturopathic medical school a few years after earning my Bachelor's of Science in Biology from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota.
My passion is learning from and serving my community as a physician, friend and educator. I focus on helping my patients discover the root cause of illness and improve their overall mind/body/spiritual health.
I also enjoy being active outdoors, backpacking, soccer, skiing, photography, cooking, gardening and working with medicinal herbs. Living simply, sustainably and creatively are important to me as well as song, laughter, music, friends, deep discussions and growing within a supportive community...and, I love to have fun.
