NOTICE: I’M POSTING 2 POSTS TODAY, THIS ONE (6) AND BELOW THIS ONE “5. World Cruise – Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera), Costa Rica – Jan. 11, 20175.”. PLEASE GO TO MY WEB SITE AND SCROLL DOWN AND READ 5. FIRST THEN COME BACK TO THIS ONE SO YOU FOLLOW OUR SEQUENCE OF PORTS 

 

Hi All (written Jan. 13, 2017)

Our second stop in Central America is Corinto, Nicaragua.  Again, as with Puntarenas, this is a small port, even though it is the Nicaraguan’s largest. 

From the ship we look out at the mountains, volcanoes, and tropical forest:

A look at the small port:

The port sign:

Coming off the gang blank, the local singers, dancers, and musicians put on an enjoyable folklore show:

As you pass out the port gates you enter the little port town, which as you will see is like a park with many tent market stalls and streets running off in every direction:

It seems as if every country has its version of a taxi.  Here’s Nicaragua’s:

As you can see it’s a bicycle like vehicle, with a rider/driver behind and two side seats in front for passengers.

I finally found a port sign in the port:

We immediately found the central market:

As usual we stopped at the first internet place we could find and Susy made all her new found “WhatsApp” phone calls:

One last look as the local taxi:

Now back on the ship, I want you to see what one of our neighbors puts on his cabin door, changing the watercolor picture and sign about every other day:

If you can’t read the sign just click once or twice on the photo and it will enlarge to full screen size.  When your ready to go back to the blog just close the blown photo.

Finally to close this post Susy asked me to show you her recent dinner photo (we take them every night to determine how we look as we go through the cruise).  She wants you to see how she is recovering from the surgery (and for me, how good she looks):

Next, Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala, Friday, Jan. 13, 2017.

Love You All,
