An article today (Mar. 3) in AM CR, "Nicaraguan quake sensed in some parts of country", reports a 6.2 magnitude quake along the NW coast there. The report said that it was "felt in the western half of Costa Rica and most strongly in Paquera, San Ramón and Grecia". Now, after some recent media reportage that Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega has enlisted the experitse of a Chinese engineer(?) to work on designing a new tranisthmic canal which when completed would compete with the Panama Canal, I am wondering about the practicality of such a canal being routed up the San Juan River, thru Lake Nicaragua and onward to the Pacific cutting thru the coastal mountains. I wonder, too, whether the volcano(es) on the island(s) in the lake would be of any concern, in the long run. ¡Pura Pasaje! Paul M. ==
