Pitaya Cactus Flower
There are 3 species native to Nicaragua, with a lot of variability within the species. Actually, there can be a lot of variability within the same plant. All 3 produce the Pitaya fruit. Flower will turn to the fruit you see in upper left...If it was pollinated of course.
The view is looking to the south on Lake Nicaragua (Lago Cocibolca). That volcano in the middle is Vulcán Concepción and Vulcán Maderas is shorter and to the left right behind it on the island of Ometepe. The more rounded peak to the right is Zapatera.
A Güirila is a tortilla made from young white corn. They are thick, sweet, filling, and usually eaten with crumbled white cheese.
Güirilas are cooked on a hot metal sheet in banana leaves to prevent them from sticking or burning.
Güirilas originated in Palcila, a small town in Matagalpa, in the north of Nicaragua.

Hi, I'm Kenny. After I retired from Kodak in 2005 I started to visit Central America to learn Spanish. I discovered while attending various language schools that I didn't learn well using their methods. So I set about to find a better model. I think I have found it. Check out this web site and offer more suggestions to help build this model.
