    Creepy clown story:

    My daughter was at a party near Managua where there was a clown. He was actually a very talented clown, a description I don't hand out lightly. Over a year later, she went to another party and the same clown performed. He actually remembered my daughter's name.

    Creepy clown story 2:

    We were driving south on the Carreterra Masaya once and passed a very angry looking clown stomping along the side of the road. Not sure if it was the same one or not.

    You know! I was searching around last year for a decent clown to perform at my daughters Bday. The decent clowns get paid damn good! Between 600-850 cordobas for a short event.

    Now if a clown could squeeze in 4 parties a week and 4 weeks a month, thats over U$700 dollars a month for 48 hours worth of work the entire month.

    I concluded that Politicians make the most in Nicaragua, and clowns are right behind them, practically the same job, except the clowns work less.

    I would think that in places like Granada, where there may be a handful more English speaking children, it may be easier to charge 1000 cordobas for an English speaking clown.

    Yes, this clown charged a decent fee. I'll see if I can get his name and number.

    Other advantages of being a clown:

    + Transportation is usually an additional (if in Managua)

    + You get to eat cake at every event
