being in nicaragua, how to sum it up on this page.
it was beautiful it was terrible it was corrupt it was fun we were gringos we were tourists we were learning it was hot it was polluted it was tranquil it was peaceful it was war torn they were fighting they are fighting they are fighters we were contra
it was squatters and shelters and hostels and host families and stray dogs and little kids and gallo pinto and bucket showers
it was poetry and war stories and volcanoes and would you rather and music and dancing and pinatas and hammocks and futbol
it was stares and broken english and broken spanish and kids begging for money
it was a post revolution country that felt like a pre revolution country, and it was a lot to take in.
it was a place i'll be going back to, that's for sure.
