On a cloudy day, La Costena Airlines carries me from Managua to Bluefields on the Caribbean coast as I watch the beautiful patchwork quilt of Nicaragua unfold below us. Nicaragua is about the size of New York state and the plane is about half way to the east coast.

A neighbor bearing gifts
Allen is a frequent visitor who has a farm a lovely walk up the beach from False Bluff. He stopped for tea one morning bringing gifts of homemade palm oil and sour-orange syrup. Allen hopes that as the mainland Caribbean coast gets more visitors he can host some on his farm and teach them what he knows about making these and other things.
