Nicaraguan woman painting her home

Nicaraguan woman painting her home pink in Metagalpa. I was visiting Metagalpa for three weeks as a doctor and the bright pink/red struck me as a wonderful contrast and a possibile reflection of the woman's mood during a raging pandemic. She is painting between rain cycles too as it rains 4-5 times a day. Notice out door bbq area with tin above so fire does not go out.
