The Nicaragua National Zoo

IMAGE GALLERY BELOW… We took a bus ride to the Nicaragua National Zoo today. It’s a great little, well-maintained zoo populated mostly by rescue animals. In addition to lots of cool birds, gigantic cats of prey, and other fauna, they had an amazing butterfly garden you can walk through and have thousands of butterflies land on you.

I never checked the actual temperature, but I would guess it was in the low 70s (F) and breezy. When we got to the lake we saw why: a huge storm heading our way that was already draping the horizon with a gray sheet of downpour. We decided not to make the rest of the trek to the park, but turn and head for home. We didn’t...
