Early in the morning, every morning, I hear the graders and the bulldozers working on the new airport. I’m keeping a photo essay of the progress. Once a week, I walk our beach path to the airport to take photos. This photo is about a month old. It looks like another walk is in order.
Tourists will be able to fly from Managua, San José, and maybe other places directly to Ometepe Island in 2012. It has its pros and cons. It’s too soon to tell. Honestly, the only advantages for us are that if the volcano blows, maybe we can make a quick getaway, and if we have a medical emergency, we can fly directly to Vivian Pellas Hospital in Managua. I’ll keep you all updated on the progress.
