I just got back from Central America and had some time to take some pictures on a trip through Nicaragua. We visited the capital of Managua, the city of Granada, two volcanoes and a fresh water lake that had sharks living in it. While driving through the country we were pulled over by police for not exceeding the speed limit, but for driving faster than the area would allow. They let us go for a $10 bribe. This is a standard practice in Central America as bribing the police for traffic offenses usually costs between $2 and $10. It can also take as much as $200 in bribes to drive from Mexico to Costa Rica.
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
