Day 23 – Corinto, Nicaragua
I am not signed up for any shore excursions today, but a friend and I walk into the little town late this morning to have a look around. It is hot and humid, and without a doubt this is the poorest country we have visited so far. Despite that, the vendors and people are not persistently selling to the crowds of tourists leaving the ship. They smile and seem happy, so it’s nice to see they have some pride and dignity despite not having much.
It is great to stay aboard the air-conditioned ship for the rest of the day, reading my e-book and sipping on a cold Beck’s beer.
