A new 5-cord coin got me re-interested in Nicaraguan history. The coin is dated 2012, but the obverse says 1912-2012, so I started asking Nicas what happened in 1912.
"Was that when Nicaragua acquired the Atlantic region from the British?", I asked a Nica friend. "La region Atlantica has always been part of Nicaragua."
"Was that when Managua was made the capital?" "I don't know."
