Granada, Nicaragua

It’s getting hot in here…

sunny 103 °F

Nicaragua has been a true test of our ability to withstand the heat, but while wondering the market we stumbled into a lady making tortillas over a wooden fire who put us to shame. It was quite inspiring to watch her working by the fire making tortillas in triple digit heat.

After our trip through the markets of Asia we would only end up with little pink plastic bags, however here we randomly ended up with an assortment of items in a full R.O.Y.G.B.I.V. rainbow of plastic bags!

We stopped in and tasted some cacao tea and cacao liquor at the Museo de Cacao where we learned how the ancient Mayans used cacao beans for currency! It was a nice complement to our hands-on chocolate making experience in Costa Rica.

We felt very comfortable in Granada and enjoyed walking around the old colonial city. The architecture inside the buildings was impressive and beautiful. Hotels, hostels, museums and restaurants all had big open ceilings and central gardens right inside the house! These open courtyards made for a great outdoorsy feeling when you were actually inside a home!
