Student Statement
In late January 2014, Chinese investment group HKND announced plans to cut a 286 kilometer long and 83 meter wide canal across Nicaragua from the Pacific to the Atlantic. 2014-15 is potentially the last chance to document the Nicaraguan landscape from the Pacific to the Atlantic, along the canal route, before construction begins. There are many questions that I aim to gain perspective on from this trip. 1. What is Nicaragua now, and what might it become? 2. How do the locals feel about the canal? 3. How might tourism be impacted by the canal? 4. What might the viewsheds of the future become for Lake Nicaragua and the Pacific coast?
