Pictorial: Life on Nicaragua's Frontier

I spent a week deep in the jungles of Nicaragua, in the heart of the Miskito tribal lands, it is the wild west, complete with Cowboys, Indians, and Outlaws. It is a beautiful place but also a place of conflict. Working with an NGO in this region requires building trust within the community I am excited to return again to do more work within the Miskito tribal lands.
