Ah, Nicaragua, a land with rich history, one of the most volcanically active countries, and the poorest country in Central America. On my trip there I went through the current capital of Managua, the colonial city of Granada, and the old capital of Leon, as well as the islets around Granada, and Masaya and its volcano.
