Rachael Mattice Photos and Text by Rachael Mattice Sundays are celebrated in a variety of ways across different cultures and regions. To some, it may be a day of religion and reflection, to others it could be chore day—when laundry, household cleaning, gym sessions, car washing and kids clothes shopping must be checked off a to-do list.

I would teach history. And I would teach it right. So, maybe run and get some snacks or something? All great passions, like great super villains, have an origin story.
It all starts somewhere. My passion for history started in my 7th grade English class. Yes, you read that right. Let me say this: I had no idea what the Holocaust was before I read this novel.
I was never taught what the Holocaust was until this novel. Yes, she assigned the book. I learned about how this group of Jewish people was taken from their village, and put into this terrible labor camp. They were brutalized and killed. It was terrible, heartbreaking, horrifying. How could this have happened to this one group of people?
Where were the police? Where was the government? Were these evil people ever caught? Thank God this never happened to anyone else. This is what I was led to believe. The book only covered this one, isolated experience. It followed this one girl and her family, from this one village, one time. It never went any broader than that.
So, why would I think that this was any bigger? A few days after we finished the novel, we walked into class, and the teacher immediately started writing numbers on the board.
The estimated number of Jewish people killed during the Holocaust, and the number of U. I thought that this was just this one village? How did six million people die??? She then started talking about the horrors and devastation of war.
My grandfather had fought in it. It was the worst war in all of history. It was the war Hitler started. He wanted to rule Europe.
The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. And we dropped two atomic bombs on Japan. And then we won. They never said anything about the Holocaust. One of my fellow classmates, and a good friend of mine, interrupts her: My friend got up from his desk, collected his things, and walked out of the room.
Why would he do that? He never acted up in class.Sunday Funday in San Juan del Sur isn't a cultural event in Nicaragua but if you're looking for a fun party, this pool crawl is the event for you.
