Nicaragua - People and places

Variety of people in Nicaragua


Nicaragua has quite a variety of people, as these two little girls from San Judas, Managua clearly demonstrate.  On the east coast, black and indigenous people are predominant.  On the west coast, the mestizo is more common. In the northeastern part of the country is where you will a lot of  the "Chele nicas" like the young one of the right in the picture.

Street sellers





Nicaragua has a great quantity of street sellers - people who make a living selling a great variety of items from door to door.  It's also common that each on of them has a distinct sound, so to speak, as they call out their products.  Kind of an audio trademark that he (or she) himself (or herself) has invented.  Remember the girl who sells donuts?
