Estatua al Soldado - Monument Managua - Nicaragua

As you head into the Zona Monumental, look for huge Estatua al Soldado (Nameless Guerilla Soldier), a bare-chested figure (the better to show off his six pack). The soldier, who looks like he’s in the middle of a war cry, holds a pickax and a flag-draped rifle. At his feet is the politically inspired inscription: “solo los obreros y campesinos iran hasta el fin” (only the workers and peasants will go to the end). Those campesinos are represented across the highway in a bronze monument to the Nicaraguan Worker, where a tired looking couple are bent to their work.
