Nicaragua: land of lakes and volcanoes

Before planning a trip to Nicaragua, I advise you to read up on the history of the bloody civil war of the Sandinist Front of National Liberation against the dictatorship of Anastasio Somoza Debayle, which went on until 1979.

Arts and crafts in Tanzania: painting, jewels and markets.

Are you souvenir persons? I am not. I don’t dislike them but I live in a very small house and I don’t have much room to allocate to souvenirs from the 132 countries I’ve travelled to so far. During my trips I do usually buy items that I can actually use once back at my home or I can see every day to spare a thought for an old travel rather than objects that I have to place in a hidden corner of my house to let cover in dust and forget about.
