Photo of the Day

At midnight of December 23, 1972, an earthquake hit Nicaragua, and changed the course of history. It destroyed much of the center of Managua, which has never fully recovered, actually. Here in the National Palace, I found this mural. Not shown are the parts to the left and right. One shows the ‘birth’ of Nicaragua from an indigenous perspective, and the other shows creating future of Nicaragua–two scenes of hope surrounding disaster and pain.
