Today, a guy from MARENA in Managua came by to count beans. That is, to ask how many manzanas of X, Y and Z there are here. This happens about once a year.
As part of the question game, he asked who the neighbors are. When I said that it was ASCOPAN on the north he said, oh, Cooperative La Garnacha. I said yes and nothing more to him but it got me thinking, "what is a cooperative, Nicaragua style?"
