Nica Food

Breakfast is coffee, scrambled eggs with vegetables and gallo pinto (translates to 'painted rooster' or 'spotted rooster') which is red beans and rice

Nicaragua has some of the best local food we've had on the trip. It mostly revolves around beans and rice (as does everything in this part of the world), but it's actually very tasty.

This is a bocadillo, which is something like and entree or snack. This example is tostones con frijoles- squashed plantain slices (a plantain is a big banana that thinks it's a potato) which are fried, then served with cheese and a bowl of beans in sauce.

...and to drink, rum. A Nicaraguan specialty.

If you don't want rum, you can have grapefruit soft drink
