Steve, Cathrine, Carmen and I spend four days walking the streets of Granada, drinking, eating as well as celebrating Carmen's birthday. A couple of the nights, we are joined by some travel photographers from Conde Nast Traveler Magazine, who we met on Corn Islands. They were taking photos for a story they are doing on the islands, planned for the June or July 2005 issue. They joined us for photos on one of our diving trips, so we'll have to see if I get my 15 minutes of fame next year. I somehow doubt it, as they seemed to concentrate on taking shots of the girls on the boat instead of photogenic me. Weird don't ya think??
Laguna de Apoyo about an hour outside Granada was a pleasant surprise. It's a volcanic crater lake with a perfect swimming temperature as well as being ideal for some kayaking or inner tubing. We only went here for a day trip, sunbathing on the property of the Monkey Hut hostel. I wish I had stayed for a day or two instead, as on this particular day the hostel was occupied by something like 16 tanned girls and not a single guy. Hmm, have to add the place to my "exceeded my expectations" list.
