  1. RIO PRINZAPOLKA - Watermelon Capitol of the World! (Part 2 of 2)

    Back to the Future

    Last week we spent four days sport fishing with a guest along the Rio Prinzapolka. Our objective for this outing was to travel up and down portions of the Rio Prinzapolka in an attempt to catch fish. We hoped to prove the Rio Prinzapolka to be the Snook and Tarpon Capitol of the World! That, unfortunately for us, didn´t happen.

  2. RIO PRINZAPOLKA - Watermelon Capitol of the World! (Part 1 of 2)

    OK, I admit it is a brash statement. And while it is also a fact that I am an adopted Texan who has somehow found his way further south into northeastern Nicaragua, it occured to me to make this claim because of something I remember as a young boy in my birthplace of Bald Knob, Arkansas rather than my adolescent and adulthood years in ¨bigger is better¨ Texas.

Since that time, FB has taken back virtually all of the features that allowed me to publish (e.g. Note Tabs, Links Widget) my work there. Since nobody can find my work on FB anymore, I decided to see if anyone would read it here on TheRealNicaragua.com.

  5. How to live on less money more comfortably

    I read different people talking about living well in Nicaragua with some idea that Nicaraguan poverty is an opportunity for them, expecting that they'll be able to sub-develop that country property when the hordes of retiring baby boomers show up.
