New eathquake alert Sunday night

Nueva alerta de terremoto / New earthquake alert

(English below)

13/04/2014 Domingo / Sunday 8:30 p.m.

El gobierno nicaragüense llamó hoy aquí a extremar precauciones ante la posibilidad de un nuevo sismo que tenga como epicentro una de las fallas de la ciudad de Managua.

Hace unos minutos ocurrió un sismo de 2.8 grados en la escala de Richter a solo ocho kilómetros de profundidad y a dos de Managua.

Esto es una señal preocupante pues puede significar la activación de fallas que van debajo de la ciudad, sobre todo la conocida como falla del Estadio.

Lunar eclipse

Apparently we will getting a front-row seat of the lunar eclipse on Monday night and Tuesday morning. It will be a full eclipse and reach its maximum at about 1:45 a.m. Tuesday morning. I doubt that I will be able to stay up that late.


How US border checkpoints should work

The video is fiction. It simply documents how things would work legally. Maybe there needs to be something in between but if you are planning to leave Nicaragua and illegally enter the US, it is what not to expect.

Khadafi Fans Can

watch a documentary on Showtime this coming Friday . . .


Review from the BBC for those on the other side of the fence:


Christopher Olgiati’s “Mad Dog: Inside the Secret World of Muammar Gaddafi”

He and DO were always close friends:


Rebecca Will Love

this one:

Don't come,, Send money,,


Won't do much for Hotel Cafe's numbers ....in truth,a lot of people besides missionaries stay there. . .I've stayed there a few times and no one would call me a missionary (called me a lot of other names, never missionary).

Some others from The Real Nicaragua's daily sweep of Nicaragua-specific news hits:

Cuban Cars

Yes, they really exist and some of them are in excellent condition, inside and out.

Many have been retrofitted with Russian engines.


Animal behavior...earthquake coming???

Has anyone else out there noticed an unusual amount of odd animal behavior lately?

Everyone Has Their Favorite

history of Nicaragua.

Here's a relatively non-controversial one. I wouldn't call this the horse's mouth, although she is getting long in the tooth:


This isn't the first time Nicaragua has been on her "best retirement locations" list . .. but she makes some good points. Just like the Crimea now belongs to Russia, Danny and friends will probably be around for a very long time.

Commercial walk-in freezer for sale

For sale, a large, used walk-in chiller in excellent condition. With very few modifications the chiller could be converted into a highly energy-efficient walk-in freezer room.

The internal cabin is 8 feet X 8 feet X 10 feet high, which is large enough to hold literally tons of food or seeds.

The compressor is a top-of-the-line 2 HP Copeland (single-phase), and takes R-22 Refrigerant to maintain a medium temperature range down to just a few degrees above zero.

Brazilian Carnival Pics

This is what Nicaragua needs !! Carnival


That would bring the tourists. What say you, Granada or SJdS ?

Or dispense with the feathers,, etc, and just paint the costume on as we did in Key West during Fantasy Fest:


Just don't read the caption above the pic . . . .

Provisional Residency as businessman

Recently I found another way to obtain residency. It is as businessman or businesswoman. Immigration granted a client of mine provisional residency based on establishing a Nicaraguan Corporation (Sociedad Anonima). It was a provisional residency for one year and it can be renewed.

Anything New Actually

happening at Seaside Mariana?

Windows 98

Read somewhere online that Microsoft is stopping support for 98 despite the fact that 30% of its customers still use it. A heads up to anyone nursing old machines. I'm no computer tech, but it seems one would should have a plan B.
