Managua – not so capital

After leaving the coast, we made a stop in the capital, Managua.  The city doesn’t exactly roll out the red carpet.  It didn’t help matters that it was excruciatingly hot.  We had a look around what would be a central square in any other city: large church (caving in and complete with bullet holes), museum, government building, park, and a fountain.  The church has been frozen in time.  It was condemned after the last major earthquake in the early 70s.  The building was shot up during a civil war. In any case, the place was deserted.  Time to go.
