How Many People Does it Take To Change a Light Bulb in Nicaragua?

The age-old question: how many people does it take to change a light bulb in Nicaragua?  I found out last night when my bulb went out and needed changing.  The answer is four.

One neighbor that owns a pulperia from which to buy the new light bulb.

One gringa who thinks she can change it by herself by standing atop her chair which she put on top of her table.  When she still couldn’t reach, she added an old paint bucket and quickly realized she was in over her head:

And two friendly neighbors.  One that has a ladder and one lightweight 14-year-old that can climb up to change it while he supports the ladder.

And of course, the gringa, who takes pictures.
