Dear Mr. Newton,
It is a joy to write about Nicaragua. The images are still so strong in my mind: the beautiful children leading us through the fumaroles, soaring over the volcanoes and over Lake Nicaragua in the little plane, Concepción rising out of the water as we approached Ometepe, our wet journey down the Rio San Juan, the majesty of the rain forest at the Refugio, the sweet-natured smiles of people everywhere. These are but a few. I have traveled independently for most of my life, but seeing the country with Richard as a guide and learning about it from an insider gave me much more insight into Nicaragua and its people. Plus it was a lot more fun! It was a privilege to be there. Many thanks!
