Trash day in Granada

Trash day in Granada

This is Mike…Trash collection in Nicaragua is similar yet different to what we are accustomed to in the states, and as the whole is more labor intensive and less mechanical. In addition, trash pick-up days are more frequent at 3 times per week. Collecting...
Nicaragua’s renewable energy

Nicaragua’s renewable energy

This is Mike…Nicaragua’s renewable energy grid can easily be seen in and around the department (state) of Rivas. This tiny country is trying to breakaway from fossil fuels and hopes to do so in a matter of a few years. We saw the many windmills last year...
As long as we support each other

As long as we support each other

 This is Mike…We are now two weeks away from our move date to Nicaragua and the emotions are starting to set in on each of us. Our kids are crying at unexpected times and we as parents are bracing for our own emotional moments yet to come. Guilt plays its...
Choosing storage and movers

Choosing storage and movers

This is Mike…As we draw closer to the moving deadline we have to make arrangements for either selling or storing the furniture. After estimating the few peanuts we could get by selling the furniture we opted to store it instead. As we found out, there are a ton...
One month away and counting

One month away and counting

This is Mike… We are one month away till we close on the sale of our house, and move to Nicaragua shortly thereafter. Part of our dilemma on scheduling anything, is there’s always a possibility the home will fall out of escrow for lack of financing, etc....

Nicaragua

< ?xml version="1.0"?> Karin hat ihr Dengue Fieber halbwegs überwunden und am vorletzten Tag des alten Jahres fahren wir weiter nach Nicaragua. Wir betreten ein Land, das wir in unserer Jugendzeit nur aus der Presse kannten und zu dieser Zeit waren es Berichte...
Zhangjiajie

Zhangjiajie

Up to this point, our time in China had been almost entirely in cities, and even the London girl was feeling a little claustrophobic. There were a multitude of options for us take for some fresh air – China really is enormous, and you can get really remote and...
Beer League

Beer League

Dan Boldly going where few beer drinkers have gone before, I have selflessly dedicated the last 18 months to trying new beers from Canada to Argentina as we traveled the Americas. One could argue that the sheer number of beers (567)tried in such a short period of time...
Costa Rica fly by

Costa Rica fly by

We left Granada and made it to the border in a couple of hours, but getting out of Nicaragua proved a lot harder than anticipated. We had to give a dollar to a couple different people who looked like they were ripping me off, but we’re actually legit, and then...

We met Rebecca in Popoyo, a small beach town in central Nicaragua. And we booked a cozy room at Hotel Wild Waves with a queen and a single bed in it so we could hold hands while we slept. Proprietor, Johnny, was a lovely host, and the crew of miscreant local boys who...
