Travel drawings from one month sketching in Nicaragua, September 2010. Traveling through Central America brought me into contact with wonderful people, and I found myself especially attracted to Nicaragua. After Haiti, Nicaragua is the poorest country in the western hemisphere. I won’t say that this is why I enjoyed the country, but I will say it must be a factor in why I felt my interactions there to be particularly authentic. I was in Leon, Laguna de Apoyo, Granada, El Rama, Bluefields, Pearl Lagoon and Ometepe.
