Windmills in Nicaragua
In Costa Rica, there is a spine of tall mountains running the length of the country but Lake Nicaragua is just a half hour from the Pacific, but it drains into the Caribbean. It would therefore be a good funnel for differences in air pressure to funnel wind from across the narrow Central American isthmus.
By the way, the spine of tall mountains in Costa Rica protects those of us on the Pacific coast from the hurricanes that hit the Caribbean, although the hurricane belt is north of Costa Rica. Hurricanes do not cross the mountains.
We have photos of our experience seeing the Opera in Paris posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.
