Rick's visits to El Salvador and Nicaragua (1988, 1991, and 2005)
Follow Rick Steves through the jungle of Central American politics. In 1988, 1991, and most recently in 2005, Rick and his fellow gringos hacked through the rhetoric of right- and left-wing politicians, broke bread with colonels, worshipped with radical priests, and slept in corrugated tin shacks with the poorest of the poor. From the U.S. Embassy to a resettlement camp in Contra country, from university professors to mothers of the disappeared, they waded the swamps of Developing World problems. This journal goes behind the numbers, the propaganda, and the news flashes to give you the next best thing to a firsthand experience. Dive headlong into El Salvador and Nicaragua — two war-torn countries in search of peace in the shadow of the United States.
