Sunday February 16

We moved on to Granada using a nice bus with air conditioning and free juice and snacks.
The border was long but not tiring, because we were able to stay on the bus most of the time. We had to get off to get our passports stamped and our bags checked. We arrived in Granada and took a taxi to Casa San Francisco a hotel we remembered from our earlier trip to Nicaragua. The parrots I liked were still there and there was also a toucan. We called him a "one-can" because there used to be two but now there was just one. One of the parrots was called Peef, he sat on my finger and walked around my shoulders. The Toucan was "arm-trained". Awesome!
We had an awesome room and the pool was awesome too. We met some awesome people too. Shandi and Andreas were a couple from England on their honeymoon. Shandi taught me how to do the front crawl and the breast stroke, but I haven't got the hang of it yet. Andreas liked to play monkey in the middle.

My Birthday. I got cake for breakfast! The staff at the restaurant gace it to me and my parents. I had coffee with my cake too! I like it with lots of milk and sugar, the parrots like sugar too.
I got a spinning top and a bird whistle, a yoyo, a card made from banana paper and a set of headphones. I can't Yoyo yet. It was my day to choose what we did and I chose to stay at the hotel and swim.

We stayed two extra days in Granada because we liked to hotel and the town so much. I didn't like the market much though because it stunk of raw meat and spices. But we did buy two shirts there, one for daddy - a Tshirt and one for me - a folk shirt made in Masaya.

Reviewing your TravelBlog
Hi Dalton:
This time I opened your Blog I got a different view, where I could scan down through your whole trip so far, and see your Travel Journal too. From now on I'm going to try to see it this way. Tomorrow I'll show Abuela too.
Tomorrow, Steven and I go to Vancouver, to an airport hotel because we have to get up at 3 a.m., to go to the airport before flying to Puerto Vallarta. So, I won't be so far from you for a week.
