Nicaragua – It’s All About the Hammock
Written by Jaillan Yehia
Never have I been to a more hammock-friendly country than Nicaragua.
Here, hammocks are omnipresent. Every hotel, home, café and market flaunts their hammocks in front of me; ‘Come’, they seem to whisper, ‘get in, bring your book. Whatever it is you think you have to do, or wherever it is you think you have to be, you don’t. All will be well with the world if you envelope yourself in my fabric folds’.
Hammocks are the sort of thing that I absolutely fall in love with when I’m on holiday. I desperately try to convince myself (and my boyfriend) that I’ll use one at home in Blighty if I buy one. But let’s face facts, my garden is next to a train line, not a golden beach and all I have to fasten it to is a couple of dying rose bushes and a brick wall as opposed to beautiful mature, thick-trunked trees or stunning wooden verandas, so I have to resign myself to saving hammocks for holiday memories. Like these.
