Politics as Usual
In general, this blog has been like a polite dinner guest – avoiding a discussion of politics and religion. But avoiding politics is hard to do in Nicaragua – especially if you work at the US Embassy. We are two months into an election year and the current president, Daniel Ortega, just announced his candidacy on Saturday to run again. The political billboards, murals, graffiti and bumper stickers that blanket the city are bound to increase.
I’m going to politely excuse myself of further political discussion while distracting you with a few photos I’ve taken recently. The first two were taken in the city of Masaya and the last one was taken in Leon.
