In the San Francisco Convent Museo are a series of paintings that chronicle Nicaraguan history.

The paintings start with aboriginal peoples who first inhabit land before it is claimed by anyone but God. Then paintings move, in  book style, through discovery and founding, colonization, building and commerce, fights for independence, reconstruction and modernization.

These paintings wait for the arrival of a brother or sister.

Maybe the next painting will be of a new Panama Canal, through Nicaragua? Maybe the next will show the country moving from Socialist/Marxist ideology to free market capitalism? 

My guesses for Nicaragua center on Revolution.

People all over the world seem to be weary of their leaders, even in my own country.
