Had dinner last night at a South American BBQ style place. Pretty cheap, but rather skimpy on the presentation. They slap down whatever meat combo you choose with a heap of fried beans and half a plantain. Everyone´s plate was a uniform ugly brown color.
Granada, by contrast, is a very colorful city with brightly painted buildings and a nice public square.
Had a wonderful day today. We went to the travel agency last night before dinner to plan out activities for the day. Eight of us went for the full day experience, from 9 am to 8 pm. The other five did just the evening activities.
In the morning, we went to a famous pottery town, where I was actually persuaded to buy two items. For a total of $10, I couldn´t really resist. Toting them around for the next couple weeks will be a pain. Hope they make it back home intact.
After a few hours of shopping, swimming in the Masaya lagoon,
We closed with a view of an active magma field before returning to Granada at 8.
I have nothing planned yet for tomorrow, but I´ll probably take a city tour at least for a couple hours.
And, as final good news, my sunburn is feeling much better, as it cracks, peels, and blisters its way off my body. Not a pretty sight, but a wonderful feeling.
