    Great photos! I lived in Managua in 1989 and was curious to see how things have changed, or stayed the same. I was there at a time of extreme political upheaval and civil war which was concluding. It was an incredible experience. I just found some old photos that I've been digitizing, here is a link to a photo essay on Flickr:

    They seem to have a number of contemporary buildings besides the old cathedral. WOW-you surely must have had the --scared out of you when picked up for picture taking. Nice job of showing the city

    Wow.....great pages . that must have been unreal, when you were arrested. We had our tickets bought but couldn't go as we only had 4 months left on our passport...another time maybe.

    Arrested at gunpoint! Now, that you don't find as a tip very often. I would have been so frightened. Earthquake in the 70's, trash everywhere, no place for breakfast...you are a patient man, Stephen. A very interesting and informative page.

    What an interesting page, Stephen!! Too bad about the garbage situation which reminds me of Colombia in the 1980's. Also, I am curious about all the armed guards everywhere!!
