The journey on Google Maps.
Sandinismo is a political and economic philosophies instituted by the Nicaraguan National Liberation Front throughout the twentieth century. The ideology and movement acquired its name, image and, most crucially, military style from Augusto César Sandino, a Nicaraguan revolutionary leader who waged a guerrilla war against the conservative Somoza National Guards. This reportage traces the  places that saw the birth, fight and the Sandinista and Nicaraguan people victory against the dictatorship of Somoza.
