Here are some photos from a trip to Nicaragua taken September 6-21, 1997, by Jim,
Corey, and Mike Baird. We attended a good Spanish language school "Casa
Xalteva" (pronounced Hall-tay-va) in Granada
(see http://www.ibw.com.ni/~casaxal/ for more info.). Here is a picture of the school in Granada:
We met many friendly and interesting people, and toured the beautiful countryside.
