Seemingly a bit touchy, the Government of Nicaragua is reported to be considering “a suspension of diplomatic relations” with the Vatican after Pope Francis described Daniel Ortega’s regime as a “rude dictatorship”.

Two surprises today. Firstly, at the Cuidad del Saber (City of Knowledge), the former US Army headquarters near the Miraflores Locks, we found a cricket match underway! One couldn’t help noticing all of the watching crowd appeared to be of Indian or Pakistani origin and, speaking to a couple of lovely guys, it seems so were the players…

The second surprise was when on the guys knew what the Isle of Man was and where it was – as he had “seen it on the telivision”.
