I have known my best friend for over 10 years, and we have been through it all. Although she is Nicaraguan and I am Puerto Rican, we have so many things in common. She basically f*cking ROCKS! Her family is my family, and my family is her family. Here's some reasons why having a Nicaraguan best friend is pretty much the most perfect thing that has ever happened to me...
1) Being Fed ALWAYS
There's nothing better like a good homemade dinner made by one of the best cooks in the world -- bestie's mom! I enter her home hungry, I come out unbuttoning my pants. Everything from gallo pinto, churrasco, and frijoles Molidos.....it's all sooo freaking good.
GOSH YES GIVE IT TO ME NOW.
2) Pizza & Flor de Caña
Bestie and I might not have the same taste in men, but we have the same taste in food. A typical Friday night in means a box of pizza with all the meat fixings we can get, along with a bottle of flor de caña, and some lovey-dovey movies we can throw middle fingers at and yell "THAT'S SUCH BULLSH*T" when we're drunk off our asses on Nicaraguan alcohol.
WE AIN'T DRUNK, WE'RE AWESOME.
3) Getting Gifts Straight From Nicaragua!
One of the perks of having a best friend from NIcaragua, is that when she does visit her family, she makes sure to bring back awesome things. And by awesome things, I mean alcohol. A lot of alcohol. ;) Trinkets are also on that list!
I TAKE ALL THE PRESENTS!
