"Man, you are living the life!"
-19 year-old kid at the Apple Store in Manhattan Beach

Nicagragua is:

Anticipation, surrender, ears slicing, blood flowing, tonas, flur de cana, two bucks for the rodeo, backside barrels, seabiscuit, el jefe, mexican bandit with two guns blazing, "pelicula star," snake pranks, the quiet assassin, the tilten hilton, the feral kingdom, the monkey broke loose, who won the sleeping contest? 5 am wake-up calls, off-shore winds everyday, Jimmy, Lance's parents, adios Mateo, Bin Laden is dead, dirt roads, tortugas, colorados, allicero, Travis, sunburns, hair getting blonde, "look at that chick," "we can butterfly the ear back on," just gaff that guy, Popoyo, chococinco, living a waking dream.........

Did all of this happen in a week? Or was it all just a dream?
