In October, 2014, we were in Estelí, Nicaragua for two weeks. As we explored the city by bus, taxi, and on foot, we saw beautiful murals, most painted, others done in mosaics, and some which added recycled items like soda bottle caps and beer can tabs.
We’ve put together the following video of the murals we saw on our trip – I’m sure there are many more that we missed. You may want to watch it through once, then again, pausing it to look more closely at individual murals. If you look closely at the murals, you can learn a lot about the people of Nicaragua – their values, culture, and especially their attitudes about war and peace.
