My wonderful driveway

My wonderful driveway

This was the end of the rainy season. Maybe a few hundred man-hours of labor, a couple truck loads of rock, I could upgrade this into a crappy driveway

Where...

What a nice view. Where in the country is this?

Viva Leon Jodido!

about 10Km past...

La Dalia, Matagalpa. The roads ends, sort of, about 1 Km farther, at the Wasaka river

la dalia

Hey I used to live in la dalia. where is your farm at? have any coffee up there?

not much..

We only have about 20 coffee bushes scattered about. We are off of the road to Bull Bull.

When did you live there ?

oh la dalia...

I just got out of the peace corps and lived my 2 years in la dalia. There are still 3 pcvs living there now, a married couple is following up my work at the health center/casa materna and schools.

When I went out to the communities I mainly went up north toward waslala. I wrote a grant to build a library in Las Veguitas and hopefully the married couple will build it in the next year or two. But Las Veguitas is unfortunately as far out on that road to Bull Bull as I made it.

I think La Dalia itself is nothing too special. But the view of all the surrounding mountains is gorgeous. Have you gone up to Penas Blancas nature reserve? Just about half an hour in private vehicle toward El Cua. Beautiful, I went there 5 or 6 times.

The view is...

one of the best parts. La Dalia is as you described, nothing special, standard small town in Nicaragua. We haven't had much time to explore the surrounding area yet.

I will have to check on the 'pcv's' and see how they are doing on your library. I saw a youTube about a young guy that had worked to remodel the health center, maybe someone you know.

We will definitely have to check out the reserve at Penas Blancas, that must be the panorama.
