Granada, Nicaragua: Street captures #2

By IamDora

Nica chicos
(Normally I don't post photos of kids unless the kids have grown up since the photo was taken. These boys would be young men now by Nicaraguan standards.)

The Nicaraguans call themselves Nicas.

These two Nica boys came up to me and asked me to take their photo. In Costa Rica you need a parents permission to take a photo of a child. Costa Rica takes the safety of its children very seriously, At schools during lunch or other breaks, the street is blocked off and there's a police presence. Costa Rica has served notice that its children should not be on a tourist's agenda. There's a 4 to 10 year prison term for adult men who come looking to be accommodated by underage girls. No such protection exists in Nicaragua

A terrific portrait of these two happy boys, Dora...and some insightful commentary. From everything I have heard and read about it, Costa Rica is a country with a pretty progressive political and social agenda. Am i right that as a country if approaches being carbon neutral?

And that Nicaragua is the poorest and maybe most repressive country in Central America?

If we all had the same environmental outlook as Costa Rica the world would be in a much better place. If we had the same attitude toward sharing and living in peace, there would be no wars, As for Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega led a revolution to overthrow the despot who was ruling, established a democratic government, then became the same despot he overthrew, suspended the constitution on a farce accusation that Costa Rica (which has no army) was about to invade them - this as an excuse to serve a third term when he had served his two terms, and has robbed the country blind ever since.

With us, you could take pictures of such exotic boys without any problems, Attention! you have to pay attention to the photographic equipment.
Two delightful little boys with beautiful smiles. How lovely they asked you to photograph them. As a teacher we werenít allowed to photograph children with our phones or personal cameras. We always had to use a school camera. Thatís when you kick yourself when you go on a school outing and have left the camera on your desk!!!
