Libertad for an anteater


View Breaking Away 2014 on BettinaNYC's travel map.

Our stay in Nicaragua is not just Spanish lessons. We recently helped the staff of La Mariposa return an anteater to the wild. Someone had dropped it off here (La Mariposa is an animal rescue, too) noticing it was injured. The folks at La Mariposa nurtured it back to health and asked if we wanted to lend a hand transferring it back to the forest. Without an ounce of hestitany, Chad and I jumped into the back of a pickup truck and off we went. Here's Chad's great video of the event:


And the view of the Nicaraguan countryside from the back of the pickup was spectacular.
