Each Day is Different, Today was no Exception–Saturday 5 May 2018


Didn’t have a clue it was Cinco de Mayo until I typed yesterday’s date in the title. Here May 1 was the big holiday. It was their Labor Day. And also when most of the world celebrates labor day.

Bell Tower Babe. The circular stairway to climb to the top of the tower almost did me in, but I made it. Unless you have a abject fear of them you wouldn’t understand. Brave Bob.

What’s not to like about Nicaragua? Being here is totally different than finding out about on the news back home.
