Where I stayed
Guys, I have to admit that on the day of my departure I was nervous as a teenager before his first date. But all that enxiety dissolved once I embarked on the flight to Miame. Actually this was my very first flight with BA. I liked their food, but entertaiment was not that good as with Lufthansa. But what was the most important was that we were on time in Miami, and then also in Managua. Right after arrival to Managua I cought on of those street taxes, as recommended by the Lonely Planet to really stretch my budget, which got me to my lodge place call Casa Vanegas. It is small family-run place with 6 rooms. At the time of my arrival, it was totally empty (until a few seconds ago, when 2 British girls show up). Walls and roof are really very thin here, as I could hear every single snoor of the Casa owner (but I did not mind, as I could not sleep much due to a jetleg). In the morning,I had a breakfast in a local place called Cafetin Mirna
By the first observation, Nicaragua is really a poor country with some criminality problems (before they let me enter a bank branch to withdraw some money I was thouroughly inspected by a guard with a metal detector). Similarly, any a bit upclass looking store or a shopping center has a few armed guys with scatterguns wondering around ( it was really funny to walk by a furniture store and see those tought guys).
Guys, I wanted to post a few pictures I took today, but I managed to delete them all from my camera memory card. It really sucks, as all of them are gone! I am such an idiot!! I will try to be more careful the next time!
Tomorrow I am heading towards Leon and its active volcanos.......
