March 30 - 31, 2016 Time to explore Nicaragua! We began our land trip with a two hour chicken bus, pedal cart and a rental car driving (great roads) to Leon, Nicaragua. Leon was founded in 1524 and is the second largest city in Nicaragua, after Managua. The highlight for us was visiting the Museum of the Revolution and meeting Ricardo – himself a former guerilla fighter for the Sandinista army. Much blood was shed for the liberty of the country – Ricardo explained his role as a young man (there were photos of him in the museum) and the victory that was finally obtained.
