People in Nicaragua doing what Nicaragua people do

May 25, 2015

Becky and I spent 10 days in Nicaragua recently.  Those who follow my intermittent blogs know this.  Others not so much.

I have lots of photos to share.  Nicaraguans are nice people.  They eat healthy, live in a warm climate, have access to lots of fruit and vegetables, plenty of meals made up primarily of beans and rice with addition of bits of meat here and there and hot sauces to give the food interest.

Nice people who love their families and like to talk about their children and grandchildren and other members of their families.

Lots of ecological awareness out in the country, lots of awareness of a joint Chinese and Nicaraguan effort to build a new canal across Nicaragua to compete with the Panama Canal.  Huge project.

So, here are some photos of people I photographed here and there in Nicaragua. It felt like a very young country to us.  Some are from the Pacific coast, some from up in the mountains of the Central American nation's highlands and cloud forests.

This blog constitutes yet one more effort to get into a routine of daily blogs. I don't lack the material, but days fill up quickly and I can never knock out a blog as quickly as I'd like. But I'm going to try anyway.  My intentions are noble. And it reminds me of the smokers who say quitting smoking isn't so hard. They've done it many times. But what the heck. Might as well try again. Here are today's photos.  Hope you like them. Every one of them involved richer encounters than I can describe here but they will give you a taste of people from a different place and culture.
