Flag of Nicaragua  , Nueva Segovia,
Saturday, February 27, 2010

2.5 hours to Jalapa, through nicely contoured hills but the pine covering was sparce at best. Jalapa itself was a grid of adobe houses without much colonial character, with streets running with open greywater draining into impassable puddles at the low points - it may improve as they seem to be in the process of installing drains in the dirt roads.

Again, no proper restaurants in town, except out at Hotel Pantano. In town, just smoky drunk-filled bars and, no decent beer either - a dry, hungry night saved by Sex and the City movie on cable.

Had intended to stay longer, but couldn't wait to get out of town the next morning. Had a bus station breakfast - only places open at that time in these towns - bolied coffee strained through an old sock is better than nothing and expensive gallo pinto with eggs and maduro is no better than the cheap stuff - can't complain at $1.25.
