The vulcano landscape was amazing, really different to whatever I have seen before!
The tour then continued to the Maysaya market, we were planning to do that the following day and said we would just have some lunch. Finally everyone joined, we ate at a comedor in the middle of the market, gallo pinto is always the basic (rice and beans), then you can add meat, cheese, eggs, plantains etc. In addition we tried some special drink which we had no idea what it was but tasted well.
Then we followed our tour colleagues through the market, they wanted to buy some things which took a little longer than planned.
And the tour continued, we drove to a village painted in white which is for us not very special but for Nicaragua as special as if we would visit a coloured village in Switzerland.
The tour continued again and the tour boss back in the city already called to check where we are because the guide and the bus had to be back for another tour.
But we had to visit a pottery factory, at the end we had nearly to run back to the bus and the tour boss kept calling from town. The driver tried to hurry, but I got the impression that nobody really drives fast in Nicaragua, they are very reluctant to overtake, really only if there is a lot of space, very contrary to Asia. I notice that I keep comparing all my impressions with Asia, probably because I am actually surprised how much similarities there are.
