It was a longer than usual bus ride. The traffic was really backed up in Managua, especially the last 5 miles to the University. This was not only the end of the bus route but where we planned on catching a collectivo to Leon. There was a line of about 30-35 people waiting (in the sun) to go to Leon. With only about 11-12 seats in each collectivo we knew we'd have to wait for the 4th or 5th to arrive. We noticed frequent arrivals for all the other destinations but the Leon-bound vans seemed to be arriving about every half hour.
When it was finally our turn I ended up in the back seat of the van (with 3 other adults and a child in arms) for the 90 minute drive to Leon. Since I couldn't see out of the window I figured it was a good time for a nap.
After a quick drink at the Leon bus station we flagged down a taxi to take us to the center of town.
