What I learned in residence in Central America, 2007

Last meal - Nica Buffet!

This is essentially a summing up of our ten month experience in Nicaragua. During which we have had a fabulous time, and we intend to come back at some stage because it's a really great location to spend time, learn new things, and have some awesome experiences you just can't get in Australia.

A school play, a butterfly farm, and leaving Nicaragua.

The virgin on parade. Again.

After Leah left we had a mere scrapping four weeks left on our Nicaragua sojourn, which we were somewhat dismal about. We'd really started settling in and enjoying ourselves, and realised that of course, we'd been starting to take the whole experience for granted until it was indicated to us that soon, we wouldn't be here to have the experience anymore. Like I said, dismal. Combined, in my case, with food poisoning.

Leah, Las Isletas, Mombacho, the Laguna De Apoyo, and an unfortunate toilet incident...

Mmmm. Big fried fish at the isletas.

What adventures we have had, on our psuedo holiday inside a holiday with Leah!

Food, glorious food - updated information on the Granada eating scene


A lady cooking up some typical Nicaraguan street fair

Since my last blog entry about food is getting read a lot, and now we’ve been to quite a few more restaurants and started settling into the whole food vibe, I’ve decided it’s time for a new, improved, and updated blog entry about the food in Granada.

Awesome Nicaraguan brand names



It never really looses its humour edge, does it? You go to a foreign country, and the brand names get you every time. I thought it was about time we compiled a photographic list of our favourite Nicaraguan brands.

Correos del toros... I think.



For those who got a teensy bit close to the bull horns...

Saturday and Sunday the 11th and 12th of August were the first of the weekends for “Hípico”—the names confuse me. This is ALWAYS the 15th of August, however because this August it fell on a Wednesday, the powers that be decreed that not only should everyone have the day off on August 15th, but there would also be parades, parties, fun in the streets and general merriment on both of the weekends surrounding the 15th. These Nicaraguans, they know how to do a public holdiay with style.
