What's Going on in Nicaragua?

What’s Going on in Nicaragua?

The title of this series refers to following quote of Elliott Abrams, a lawyer of the USA: ” There isn’t any way for the people of Nicaragua to find out what’s going on in Nicaragua”.

Well buddy, it’s even harder for someone who’s not from Nicaragua, but yet I went and gave it a shot. In this series you will find my idea of  a country which has been holding on to Socialism during the days that   all neighbouring countries were destabilized. This is my image of the country of Daniel Ortega.

One or two decades ago, Nicaragua was considered a No-Go zone. Gangs were roaming the streets and poverty forced even the most honest person into petty crime. But those days are over. These days Nicaragua is considered the new Costa Rica: safe, beautiful and most of all… cheap!
