Nicaragua - People and places: Bamboo

Bamboo





I was walking down a narrow road in La Reforma, Masaya in Nicaragua and heard an unusual noise. I looked around and saw this bamboo patch, moving in the wind and making it's typical and unusual noise. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth - it can grow 24 inches in 24 hours!! No kidding!! They are some of the largest members of the grass family.
