Central America 2012

Central America 2012: These images of daily life in Nicaragua and Honduras represent a simpler life. Central America is poor by USA standards. So poor that most families live on less than $2 US dollars a day. This area was torn apart by several wars during the late 1970’s and 80’s which can still be seen today.
