Clint Eastwood

Don Mauricio today
Don Mauricio is the Clint Eastwood of Nicaragua.
He’s 80 something years old and every night walks up to the summit to sleep at the Ranchon, to keep his eye on the lone solar panel that the tourism and coffee cooperative has up there. Every time I see him he’s riding his horse and he’s the guy who donated his land to the cooperative so they could realize their dream of sharing their traditional way of life.
Today I was elated to see him waltzing up the summit to attend an eco-tourism meeting.
