Photographer's Note

13 years ago, on the wonderful Ometepe Island in the Lake of Nicaragua.
The clouds pass by my window, on the sky over the small and dirty guesthouse on the shore of one of the two volcano of the island.

Giant clouds comin' from the close Pacific Ocean and that were running to the other side, to the Atlantic Ocean.

There were nothing to do in the summeer 1995 at Ometepe.
No bars, no pubs, no restaurants, just a couple of posadas where find some strange grilled fish and a warm beer.
Strange fish 'cause the Lake of Nicaragua it was a sea, a giant lagoon, closed maybe by an earthquake. So today in the lake there are swordfish, tarpon, and sharks, including the Lake Nicaragua Shark (Carcharhinus nicaraguensis), which is fully adapted to freshwater life, and many other fishes that had a prope evolution.

Apart that, after the sunset the whole island was closed, all the people was in the bed at 7 p.m.
Nothing to do...just watch the clouds pass by my window, and read a book....maybe...but the guesthouse was without energy...just a candle!
