NT Fills a Vacuum on Nicaragua Reporting

August 24, 2007

Dear Tico Times:

For the past few months I have read all, or most of your incisive articles in The Nica Times. Good insights, good reporting on Nicaragua; this had been lacking here in Costa Rica as well as in the international press.

Your work has, at least for me, filled a vacuum.

I feel a little bit Nicaraguan myself. I lived in Estelí for almost eight years, from the triumph of the revolution on.

I worked for a Swiss government bi-lateral program, something like USAID.

Now I am retired on a little quinta in Coyol de Alajuela, watching the world events go by, playing tennis and taking care of the grandchildren.
