What's the most fun you can have while staying at a gorgeous Nicaraguan ecolodge? If you answered, "Collecting eggs to make my own breakfast", have I got the activity for you!
Morgan's Rock offers daily tours to a local farm, leaving just before 7 am. We, along with a few other intrepid guests, climbed into the back of a pickup truck to make the bumpy journey. Not only did we venture into the chicken coop to collect eggs, we also milked the cow and made tortillas under the watchful eyes of the farm ladies.
We worked hard for our breakfast of rice and beans, eggs and tortillas, but it was delicious, and remains one of our best memories from Nicaragua.
Handy hint: do not wear open-toed sandals while collecting eggs.
