Intrepid Journeys - Nicaragua (Rawiri Paratene)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2005

PG
Parental Guidance
[Nicaragua] has the makings of something exceptional that just needs nurturing. This land and its people has endured a lot; it's endured natural disaster, human strife and revolution...its history is quite scary. But Nicaragua has won me.
– Rawiri Paratene
I taxi to the local market and board a bus to go to a wharf where Omotepe sits majestically in a lake. I greet it with a quiet mihi. Throughout this journey and many others over the years, I continue with the rituals of my ancestors that offer respect for the places I visit, and I believe they help keep me safe.
– Rawiri Paratene, from day six of his Nicaraguan travel diary
