Nicaragua! This little country has been through so many natural and man-made disasters, yet there is still so much beauty in the landscape and in the hearts of the people. There is such a large majority of people living in poverty; yet they still want to share what little they have. It is an amazingly beautiful country with so much to offer and yet an absolutely heart-breaking history. After leaving Nicaragua, it took me weeks to emerge from my state of reflection. There is so much we don't know about Nicaragua and other Latin American countries that are so close to home.
