Pescardors Chicos Nicaragua 35mm

Jiquiliste Nicaragua - There is a river that flows into the ocean during the rainy season. November isnt exactly the rainy season. So, the river backs up and does not flow to the sea. However, it was getting high and there are 2 fairly nice size houses backing against this river. Apparently the people who own the houses got the OK to drain the sucker - dig the sand out and have it flow so they dont have to worry about their houses getting washed away. This ends up being quite the hangout for the locals. They put up nets, catch fish and shrimp with their hands and some even tried to surf the standing wave created by the initial flow.
