This is completely exagerated, but we all had a good laugh over it. Olivea & Elaina needed white sandals for the dance competition, and so we looked for 3 or 4 days to find something suitable. There were several styles in white, but the tricky part was the size! Olivea wears a size 8 1/2 now and Elaina a 7. These girls have gigantic feet using Nica standards. We tried to find out what the average women’t shoe size is here, but we weren’t able to find anything documented. We think it might be a 5. The shoes out on display are usually 3’s or 4’s though. Nicaraguans are a very petite culture. We are happy to report, that the girls did end up finally both finding something that would work ok for the event. Hurray!
