Travel Blogs from Granada
... Is the whole chaos theory so tenuous, one flick of a butterfly's wings and the universe changes? One new pair of shoes and you screw up a kid's life forever?
I'm so frustrated. I feel like one those fancy dancing horses that come
into town once a year to parade down the streets in front of all the
poor people, sleek and fat, dripping with stuff I have but don't
need; and compared to a city of
people doing real, hard work, basically just a knick-knack.
... wanted municipal fees at $1 per person and we also paid some small bribe to the local guard so that they wouldn't check through all our big bags. The whole process took a long time, especially because everything was done manually rather than electronically. After this, we had reached Nicaragua! We stopped by a local eatery for lunch and we had the local Nicaraguan dish of rice and beans, together with meat and salad. Then ...
... hand crafts and bought a little elephant, of course.
10. Stopped in Granada, the colonial city.
After all of our stops, we headed back to the border and it was deja vu of getting out and walking. The pictures from this will tell you more than I can with just words.
All in all, it was a very busy day. I saw some amazing things and took some great pictures. I hope that I can one day make it back ...
... adventure when we decided to leave the tour guide (NOT RECOMMENDED, most people on the island say that you are required to have a tour guide on these volcanos because without one you may get lost and never be found). As Anna and I headed down the Volcano we left little notes for the group so they could find us on their way down. Luckily we made it out alive but there were a few times we weren't too sure!

All was good, we got a room for $79.. Pool was larger, breakfast was good and the beers were cold. The staff was very helpful when we had some questions and they spoke OK english.
Things could have been a bit cleaner but so could the whole country
