via Cyndi Lauper de visita en Nicaragua (in Spanish)
Nicaragua has had a few celebrities visit in the last couple-three years, and for me this is one of the coolest people yet to come and visit. Cyndi Lauper, since her days of “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and “True Colors” has been a secret favorite of mine for a long time now; since the 1980’s right? So good on ya Cyndi for visiting Nicaragua and extra kudos for doing some actual activities like going to visit Mombacho Volcano and hanging out at what I’m sure is a quite nice hotel called Hotel Bubu in Granada.
Most of the other celebrities that have visited, like Michael Douglas and Katherine Zeta Jones, Morgan Freeman, and Halle Berry have all been to Nicaragua. Most appear to have gone straight to the Mukul Resort, a several (around five!) hundred dollar a night fantasy land to which they are whisked via helicopter shortly after landing in their private jets at the Managua airport. They don’t get any sort of real Nicaraguan experience in that form of travel IMO.
I have a feeling Cyndi doesn’t exactly travel that way. I imagine her to be much more “regular folk.” And just to set the record straight, Halle Berry came to Nicaragua to do some work related to the U.N. or some such thing. Actually, visiting schools in the north of the country under the auspices of the U.N. World Food Program so again, kudos to Ms. Berry!
