    Re: Save El Porton Verde (and my son!)

    I thought that there was a passable road (of sorts) from Bramadero to Robledal. I remember seeing the turn off when I walked by Bramadero on my way back from Yali, and I saw it from the Robledal end...

    Re: Matagalpa

    That is sage advice.

    Re: Manuel Guillén's cartoons 2019

    And I was stuck by "como" meaning "I eat."

    So, I guess that sentence (Nada como pato) could just as easily mean, "Nothing eats a gay guy."

    :)

    Homophones indeed.

    I'm glad that the touristy areas are still tame.

    Reading your response, it occurs to me that what I saw in Managua in April and May may have been restricted to Managua. I assumed that what I was...

    Re: No Ortega?

    There are a certain number of Nicaraguans who are anti-gringo, but this is nothing new. In my experience, they are a minority. I ran into them in 1996 (my first trip to Nicaragua), and I've run...

    Re: Getting Exciting: Three Bombs in Estelí

    When you say "bombs", what exactly do you mean? I'm used to explosions in Nicaragua in the form of mortar rounds and firecrackers and such... Were these larger than that?
