Back when I was in graduate school and Reagan was a reality and the U.S. was up to no good in Nicaragua, I was a big Sandinista fan; huge, really. One of my former students, Aubrey G., is traveling in Nicaragua and sent me this beautiful postcard (click to enlarge)--I thought I would share it with textmex galleryblog readers, oh marvelous spelunkers of the internets.
Of the card, Aubrey, our new correspondent from Central America, writes
I thought you would love it! You can definitely post it. I'm reading a great book about the Civil War in Nicaragua called, Blood of Brothers: Life and War in Nicaragua, by Stephen Kinzer, a journalist from the States who was here before, during, and after the war. I definitely recommend it.
Send me a link when you post it on your blog!
Hope all is well!
