Nicaraguan Towns Look For Towns to Twin With

In my work as the Nicaragua Desk Officer for the British Embassy in San Jose I have been approached by two communities, San Jose de Bocay and San Juan del Norte regarding finding them towns or cities in the UK to twin with. Up to now I have not had any luck so I decided to try this forum. It does not matter what country the town or city they twin with is from, the communities I mention are just trying to get themselves a bit more contact with the outside(developed) world. If anyone has any suggestions please get in touch.

Personal radio announcements

There is an FM station (99.7MHz) that I listen to sometimes in Estelí. One thing they broadcast are announcements. But, they are not "Sally's dog is lost" announcements. Virtually all are someone is in the hospital or they have died.
