Road Tisey reserve, a few kilometers from Esteli, we found the farm of Don Alberto Gutiérrez and his brother. He is a XXI century hermit that spent most of his life in agriculture and sculpting. Self-taught, he transformed the rocks of his farm into a stunning art gallery. It is a pleasure to talk with him while displaying all his works. He does not charge any fees, but it is advisable to tip.
Dear friends of Mi Nube:
Recently, I visited the Wildlife Refuge in Guatuzos in the south west of the great lake of Nicaragua. The experience was delightful. We toured the Papaturro River channels and saw many birds, turtles, alligators, and monkeys. Once we arrived at the interpretation centre, a tour guide led us through the trails and on a tour of the puento pendant to appreciate the wetlands' natural fauna, which is a RAMSAR site. We visited the hatchery where earth lovers support the reproduction of river turtles and alligators. Anyway, it was an event, it poured rain and we all got wet. It's worth visiting the Guatuzos. If you are visiting Nicaragua, stop and visit this paradise.
Nicaragua began to collaborate with Darian Foundation funding to educate 5 children in the Federico Garcia Lorca school, located in the town of Ciudad Dario, department Matagalpa. The 2011 school year welcomed 245 children living at risk and extreme poverty. Of these, 15 have scholarships, five of which are provided by Group 2013. Three students are in the second primary grade and two are in first grade. For the quarterly sum of $ 90 it covers the cost of education, food, uniforms and medicines for each beneficiary.
In 2004 I was sent by the Chamber of Small and Medium Nicaragua Tourism Industry (CANTUR) to explore Miskito near Bilwi, Puerto Cabezas in Nicaragua to put in a bid for that region. The result was the route of the Gods: In the footsteps of Walpatara. This is a beautiful rural region, with live indigenous cultures and a lovely mixed people with lots to offer. I hope one day you will get to visit it. From Managua you can take a flight to Puerto Cabezas Bilwi and contact any of the travel companies or the Tourism Institute.

I often go to Masaya, which is a place known as the city of flowers and the cradle of folklore. They trade amid traditional crafts and old adobe houses which appear to be prostrating shelled the magnificent masonry made of clay, straw and wood. I stopped my canon T2i to capture the beauty of an aging landscape.
