Nicaragua was a strange and beautiful place. I really didn't know what to expect there, but I had heard many good reports from others who had been there recently. Also I was alone for the first time in several weeks, for I had been traveling with numerous different folks for a couple months through Belize, Guatemala and most recently Costa Rica.
Go if you can. The people here were incredibly friendly. It seems that
very few tourists visit the country. I found absoulatly no hastility at
all. The countryside is beautiful.
