Photo of the Day: Fireworks in -- Guess Where?

In honor of the 4th of July tomorrow, we thought it only appropriate to share some lovely fireworks with you. We caught this fireworks show on the road, in a Spanish-speaking country that was ruled for a year in the 19th century by an American from Tennessee. (He was forced out by armies from neighboring countries.) Isn't history fun? Click to find out the name of the country, or submit your guesses in the comments section!

And the answer is -- Nicaragua! William Walker was president of the country from 1856 to 1857. We caught these fireworks from the balcony of La Gran Francia Colonial Boutique Hotel.
