AGSTAR Photojournalism

Wednesday, January 17, 2007

The third scene of our play was done with the visit of the President of Iran. At least we got some decent images out of the event. Ortega took him to the slums of Managua, Barrio Cuba where they held thier political theater again it was hard work, lugging gear and running all around the city. I got the pool duty on his afternoon prayers at the Islamic Center in Managua.

here are the pics,

Tomas:

I'm a radio producer in Portland, Oregon looking to speak with a journalist in Nicaragua about the political scene down there. Any chance of getting a ten or fifteen minute telephone interview with you? I have more details... but don't want to clog your comments! You can email me-- no spaces and the @ symbol instead of "at" of course.
