Ryan and Angela were lovely hosts and we enjoyed learning all about the lake, the island and its people from them. In fact, we learned that the Nicaraguan government is allowing a canal to be built through the country which is planned to be much larger than the Panama Canal. This project is being ...
... to the beach, tidal pools, and a wonderful vibe. We did have one hiccup here- Scott broke his heel by falling off the top bunk at our place. There was no doctor in town but he did manage to get an X-ray in Rivas (a town about an hour away). Scott paid $20 for the X-ray and then texted it to Todd (his bro) and Whit (our friend) both of whom are docs in the US and they had ortho docs look at it. Concluded we could ...
