Where I stayed
La Tortuga Booluda ( The Lazy Turtle)
We spent some time in Parque Central watching the celebrations and fireworks. The party is for the Virgin Mary´s immaculate conception, lots of people have altars in there houses with candles, flowers, pictures of Mary etc. They are very impressive and must have taken some time to make. The Nicaraguan´s walk around the streets and ask questions like ´who is our savour´and the reply would be ´The Virgin Mary´, sorry this is a bit vague because we don´t speak enough Spanish. Anyway afterwards they get given sweets by the people in the houses, we thought it was a bit like Halloween but without the costumes!!
We had met some great people at our hostel so we all decided to go to the party on the beach this evening! Great party and we didn´t get back until 4am (I know that you will all be shocked). From our group we only took one camera because there was a lot of pick pocketing, unfortunatley the SD card is corrupt and we can´t get any of the pictures.
