Nicaragua: Coco Loco

I’m kinda nervous.

No, not a job interview (bitch, please!). Nor an upcoming flight, or anything else that normally makes my pulse race. It’s simply, because the electricity is gone. Actually, i’m not that restless just because it is gone. That happens from time to time in Central America. It’s more, because I don’t know why. Not knowing the cause, makes it hard to fix the problem. At least, to fix it for longer than short term.

„Tranquila“, the brown-green, calming teddybear eyes of my Nicaraguan colleague give me this look, which is a mixture of “trust me, everything’s gonna be alright” and “man, what the hell is wrong with her, why is she so nervous?”.

I simply can’t. I can’t believe, that contrary to other travel lists, on mine, Sydney was not very present. I actually can’t even remember, why. Why am I here, then? Well, because my flight to Central America is going from here. Pretty low argument, huh?!

But now, I am definitely in Sydney, leaning on the metal railing, the Harbour Bridge in front of me, the Opera House to my right, its white orange-peel like shape gleaming in a golden light, giving this building even more mystic volume. It’s sunset. And it’s just overwhelming to be here.

And even better: I am with friends 🙂
