The walls around Barrio Jorge Dimitrov, one of the most dangerous in Managua, Nicaragua, are full of graffiti — but it’s not what you’d expect. The dove above says: “I am Nicaraguan. I am peace,” and “Without weapons. Without fear.”

Oh my god this is terrifying.

Anyone else notice the sudden appearance of “Isabella” in 2009? Anyone else come to the startling realization that this:

is why?

(Fun fact: Pop culture drives a lot of naming trends!)

Arrival: flight was uneventful. Watched ‘Captain America: the Winter Soldier. Took a van/bus to hotel and got settled in. Ate lentil soup and pork tenderloin in tamarind sauce for dinner. Discovered mom and I were in a room with nonfunctional AC - not good for a hot flash sufferer or my heat intolerance. Switched rooms for the night.

Day 1: rode through town with shops lining the sidewalk on both sides of the road. Barely leaves room for pedestrians, who have no trouble attempting crossings in front of moving vehicles. Set up in church in Las Viudas (The Widows) where women were already waiting with their children. Skinny dogs, chickens, horses, and cattle. Haven’t been on my feet all day since working as an MA at FFLC! Cooled off back at hotel and had flauta-esque meal for dinner. Wifi was being a bitch when trying to upload photos.

There were more of these yellow trees around town, so I’m sure there’s an explanation for them. #roads #nicaragua #nana2014 #dayone
