Many thanks for all your kind remarks and votes on the athletic woodpecker.
Here is something for Alex Appleby and all of you who enjoy trips off the beaten tracks
This is the main road to the Solentimane bay . Nicaragua is very poor so sometimes we felt really awkward in our Tico rental car ( don't tell the company!), when asking for directions politely. You understand immediately that the notion of people visiting the area in a foreign car with a strange accent must be a bit like the visit from the little green men. You can understand Cardenal's stories a lot better once you have seen this, so I was amazed with the warm welcome and the politeness we experienced.
An since I'm hopeless at landscapes and really don't feel like fiddling with them much, here aree two views of the same spot, let me know which one yo prefer.
