as i was saying...

so my limited time ran out at the internet cafe in la fortuna and now i'm in granada, nicaragua and have sucessfully froze the computers here at the hostel 2X so no pictures till i'm at a computer that is savy to uploading pictures like most computers do...

today we arrived in granada sticky and probably smelly to our hostel from isla ometepe this morning... the sun is definately warmer here in nicaragua and even more so here in granada. it is quite charming though... we arrived on a street that didn't fit the colonial description in our lonely planet but we soon made our way to the hostel amongst brightly colored buildings and the style semi similar to my 24 hrs in puerto rico...

annika, amanda, flo and i were delighted after a lil rest to hit the streets. we bought enough fruit to feed our whole hostel tonight but wanted to try new veggies and fruits and make amazing guacamole again... like in la fortuna. it's a change of pace from hiking volcan concepcion yesterday and swiming in laguna nicaragua but the hamacas still enchant me and make me feel far far away from home.

i'm lugging my father's old pentax around and finally had a good photo session around town today. i even have the fancy film that will probably cost me more to develop than my whole trip when i return but i want to capture the colors a bit better than regular 400 fuji. i snapped a whole roll of 36 in a few hours. i can't wait to see them later. film you may say is out but i'm a slight purist when it come to pictures. i feel digital is fake even thought i broke 2 years ago and bought one... yet film still lives on in my book.

tomorrow is open to suggestions... maybe a horse drawn cart around town maybe a trek to honduras... we're checking out the bearded monkey hostel to see if their discounted tours is anything to hold our breath over. so more pictures to come!

I absolutely love traveling in Central America!

Did you say you were making your way to Guatemala or just Nicaragua? If so, Guat is one of my most favorite places in all the world.

I'm jealous.
