Nicaragua - People and places: Buy some ice

Buy some ice


Most people in Nicaragua don't have refrigerators or freezers.  However, everybody wants a nice cool tall drink every once in awhile.  Therefore, those with refrigerators (with freezers) often sell ice to their neighbors filling a plastic bag with water and freezing it.  At this local store you can buy 25 bags of ice for about $1.
Pretty good deal IMHO.
