Great mkamionka 2018-10-30 12:22

Hi Paul,
So you are saying there are many different ways a tourist can die in Nicaragua: aggressive monkeys, active volcanoes, political instability. It feels almost as if you have risked your life for this great reportage.
Excellent wild life photography!
Veyr interesting not as well!

Default To mkamionka: something very important to know

Thank you Mariusz,

Something very important that you should know:
Before the unrest began in April, it was stated that Nicaragua was the second poorest country in the Americas, after Haïti.
But it was the second safest for foreigners to travel, after Costa Rica.
How about that?

And something else:
Do you have any idea how many accidents happen to people at home, especially in their bathroom?
And how many people die at home when they watch TV?
Those numbers are really frightening. Watching TV is a dangerous activity and the bathroom at home is one of the most dangerous places.

Take care,
Paul

That is why I don't watch TV at all.

Just kidding: I don't watch TV at all but not because it is dangerous but because it is brainwashing.
I suppose it is some sort of the danger. In English there is the expression which people use for children to stop staying too long in front of the screen: "you will get square eyes!".
I do use a lot of bathroom and I am aware of it being not the safest. Too many slippery surfaces

I raised this topic on purpose to refer to our previous discussions when I read that you prefer the meet the more peaceful species of monkeys ha ha.

Kind regards,
Mariusz
