nicaragua, final installment
I’m going to put the rest of the photos in this entry, because I don’t feel like making any more installments!
View of Leon from the old Samosa fort
Alex and Hunter
We had to take a cab to the fort from Leon on the rockiest, dirtiest dirt road I think I’ve ever seen. At some points, I didn’t think the cab (an old, rickety… I want to say Peugeot?) would make it. It was worth the journey, though, and our cab driver explained some of the history to Alex, who in turn translated it to us. It was like a tour and cab ride all in one!
Evidently, the fort isn’t entirely abandoned.
We’re fairly certain that the shoes in the previous photo belong to that guy.
Portra 160 NC, Bus depot on the way to Nagarote, where Alex and Kaitlyn live.
One of my favorite shots from the trip
En route to Nagarote…
The bus was delayed for a few minutes because it had to wait for this herd of cattle to cross the road. Quite an hilarious scene.

Alex in his backyard
Lunch at Dona Elena’s, where Alex and Kaitlyn stayed until they moved into their own house around the corner. She was a very sweet woman and a great cook!
Alex (Hunter and I were in a bike taxi) on the way to the poorer part of town
Another one of my favorites
Velvia, last roll of the trip…
Our motortaxi driver, who said he lived in Raleigh for three years
Well, I hope you got at least a sense of how amazing a country Nicaragua is… hopefully I even intrigued you to want to visit someday!
