Visit to Managua, Grenada, old Leon (UNESCO site) and the current city of Leon.

Like many of the central American countries the capital city is essentially American fast food joints strung together – however the colonial cities are lovely.

Highlight was a visit to a coffee farm on the Volcano though a lot of time trying to photograph the frogs. I’m not really good at small moving object. 

A bloody civil war from 1979 through the 80s was yet another cold war conflict largely impacting civilians just trying to do their own thing. The Sandinistas won and the outline of Sandino (who had died almost 50 years earliers but was the inspiriation) is ubiquitous.
