Ticket to Ride: Managua
When my wife and I first arrived in the capitol of Nicaragua on our honeymoon, we were surprised to see buses upon colorful buses going through the city, filled with people inside and out. We had not realized that we would be arriving on the biggest holiday of the country: July 19th - Liberation Day.
On that day in 1979, the dynasty government was overthrown and a revolution began. I won't claim any expertise in Nicaraguan politics, but I can tell you that the holiday is celebrated much like an independence day is celebrated in most countries.
