For many years in Nicaragua, Eskimo was the only brand of ice cream available. For that reason, in Nicaraguan Spanish, 'eskimo', despite being a brand name, has become the everyday word for ice cream throughout the country. (V)

#Xela (Quetzaltenango) bus, #Guatemala  by Jorge Mario García ........................................................... www.globe-tripper... | "Home-made Hospitality" | #GlobeTripper

Xela (Quetzaltenango) bus, Guatemala - by Jorge Mario Garcia -- typical site. Ridden on a few -- mostly fine, but the one from Antigua to Guatemala City goes fast -- and you MUST hang on or you'll topple!

I’m repelled by the prospect of traveling to a foreign place and locking myself into some posh compound for the duration. On the one hand, I will probably never go on one of those charity vacations where you perform worthy labor on behalf of poor people; on the other, the one cruise I’ve taken (from Mumbai to Athens) really was a supposedly fun thing I’ll never do again.

Granada, Nicaragua, was founded in 1524 by Francisco Hernández de Córdoba, ostensibly the first European city in mainland America. Unlike other cities that claim the same distinction, the city of Granada was not only the settlement of the conquest, but also a city registered in official records of the Crown of Aragon, and the Kingdom of Castile in Spain.  www.finisterra.ca
