Photo of the Day

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Intercontinental Hotel in the heart of Managua–one of the few buildings that survived the massive earthquake that destroyed Managua on December 23, 1972.

View taken from Tiscapa hill, the highest point in Managua, overlooking Lake Managua.

**Correction: “This is the old Intercontinental; at some point (probably in the 90s), it was bought by Crowne Plaza and a new Intercontinental Hotel was built by Metrocentro.” (correction¬†thanks to Jennifer Marshall)
