Yes, that's right I am back in Matagalpa. When I was last here this city stole my heart and captured my imagination with its feminist street art, mountain climate, abundance of coffee shops and a women's weaving coop in need of some blog help. As I was leaving Matagalpa the last time I asked a friend if she knew of any projects in need of a bilingual, organizationally inclined gringa. I was in Leon when I got the email, yes she did have a project which might be up my ally. The Telares Indigenes coop from the community do El Chile, outside of Matagalpa, need some help sorting out their blog. So I canceled my other volunteer commitment, rented a room in a Matagalpa guest house and headed for the mountains.
