Granada was a busy time, the first day we went on a long tour which started with a boat trip around Lake Nicaragua visiting some of the islands there.  We went round one private island which was up for sale (we had to pretend we were interested in buying it!) which was lovely, and only $410000, I did resist however as I thought it might stretch my travelling budget somewhat!!  There was also monkey island which was tiny but had 4 monkeys living on it.

Next stop was to see Volcano Masaya, which is actually 2 volcanos and 5 craters - one of which is still smoking (so there were lots of toxic gases in the air!).  Then it was onto a handycraft market and then to a village well know for its pottery, here we saw a guy make a pot and he went through how they were made and glazed etc.  They were really pretty, and so, somewhat stupidly I bought one, but it was quite cheep so weŽll see how it lasts!

The next day we spent relaxing by a crater lake - it was australia day so the aussies in the group cooked a bbq for us, and i did some kayaking on the lake and just relaxed!
