February 20-21—We found our hotel with a very typical address; get this: "From the Military Hospital, 4 blocks toward the lake (north), 2.5 blocks down (west), on the left."
|Tortilla on the fire|
|Rooster higher than the rest|
|coffee drying on racks at the farm|
|"Ortega for President" graffiti EVERYwhere! On every rock.|
|Coffee drys, gets raked and packed up|
|Cacao on the tree|
|Roasting cacao beans|
|Grinding beans by hand|
|Stirring in the additional ingredients|
February 26—This time Les got his Boer team shirt on and we climbed into the cab to see the 11:00 game the druggist told us would be happening today, but the taxi driver said today is an AWAY game north of where we were in the coffee farms. I guess “beisbol” isn’t in our plans for Nicaragua. Maybe in Mexico?
