    • Hi Scott, the U.S. Ambassador was the invited guest of honor at the luncheon hosted by the Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners (W/NP). Ellie and I are here in Nicaragua as volunteers for the W/NP and so were also invited to the luncheon. I had completely planned to get a photo of Ellie and I with the Ambassador. However, as soon as the luncheon was over she was immediately surrounded by other luncheon guests wanting photos with her. I began to feel sorry for her and all the commotion made me uncomfortable with asking her for yet one more photo.
