Sunday at the ball game
Baseball is a big thing here on Corn Island; when the national teams are not here the locals play almost every Sunday.  This past Sunday Costa Caribe (the team representing the Caribbean coast) and Boer (a team representing the capital city of Managua) played their final game in a three game series with each team winning one game apiece; the tie-breaker.

NICARAGUA - Corn Island - 2013 - House Sitting - CHAPTER 3 - A Full Week

You want a drink, do it "island style"


What a week; scrambling to complete construction projects, the homeowner leaving the island, finding a red boa in the sink, wasp stings, and the dog finds me at a bar.  Damn, life is good.


NICARAGUA - Corn Island - 2013 - House Sitting - CHAPTER 2 - The First Week


I’ve been here on Corn Island for a week with the homeowner learning her Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO #335699) processes.  She currently rents out two rooms and is in the final construction stages of a third.  The room I’m in and the new one are directly on beach.  The “Tree House Escape” is located right across the street and it too has sea views.  No need for air conditioning as we’ve had a breeze most of the time.
