My Nicaragua trip went well

I visited Nicaragua from 8 April 2019 until 28 June 2019, 80-some days.
I spent almost all my time in Matagalpa and on a coffee farm outside of San Ramon.
Everything worked out fine, no trouble anywhere, never felt endangered or threatened in any way.
The ATMs all worked except one that was always out of cash in Maxi Palí. The stores all had stuff, the gas stations all had gas and the buses all ran more or less as expected. I could not see or feel any difference from any of my other trips to Nicaragua. Except one of my two favorite hostels was a little smaller and had dropped their prices a little and one of my two favorite restaurants had gone out of business.

One of the advantages to being a foreigner is you can walk around oblivious to what is going on. And best to stay that way because it is not your fight and there is no solution in sight. The country people are often in a better situation to hunker down and last out the problems. they have food, a roof, religion, and juaro to keep them going.

Saw my first "Daniel in 2021" sign the other day, so all is normal here.

The volcan Masaya has a small fee by day and a large one at night, based on a trip about 2 years ago. Check locally on tourist things as the collapse of foreign tourism has left many cutting back on staff and services and either raising of lowering prices to survive.

SJDS is still there and charming as ever, as is Selva Negra resort in the mountains, so I suspect Leon and granada are still there.

The US consulate still has its cat 3 warning up I believe, but that is partly because it could all blow up on short notice, but meanwhile on the street all is tranquilo.

I spent two nights in Leon. It seemed like a normal city, everything was working. I took the bus to the beach, there were tourists there.

On the way into Nicaragua I took a taxi from the airport to Mercado Mayoreo to get a bus to Matagalpa. I left the airport to get a taxi on the street, I think that is not recommend but a taxi in the airport is $10 and it is $5 on the street 100 meters away. On the way out of the country I spent one night across the street from the airport in Managua, in a gated community.

I heard varying opinions on where the faults lay in the recent troubles. I try to avoid that sort of talk, me talking isn’t going to improve anything. I can make things a little better by spending some tourist dollars and teaching kids a little math, so I do that.
