Oh my...lots of action at the hostel.  It has been a non-stop sex-o-rama in the room next to me (private room unlike my area).  Carolina (the gal who works here - that every guy I know would want to marry) and I continue to pee our pants laughing.  Five times yesterday (that's just counting when I was here) and all morning this morning "ohhhh, ahhhhhh, 'say my name', si, si".  I swear all of us outside the door feel a little dirty after each session.  I mean alright already!  She is a local from Chinandega and he is from the states (not one of our finest either from the sound of things).

Anyhow, moving on...yesterday was fairly quiet.  I walked through the south of town to the Ruinas de San Sebastian - ok, hold on.  He's just come out of the room looking for matches...and now they are getting high.  Should be starving in a few minutes I imagine.  Back to the story, so I walked and walked and walked and past the damn thing!  It was mucho calor yesterday and I stopped at a small shop for some water.  Well it turns out, these small shops are actually the front of people's homes and they set-up a few items in coolers (water, soda, snacks).  It seems like the best situation to me if you have kids.  This gal had three boys and was watching tv with them when I came to the door. is a micro-finance organization that I've been in touch with for a few years.  Lately many of the people I loan to have been from Leon, Nica.  And I couldn't understand when it described these stores online, and low and behold this is one I've loaned to!  So today I will go in search of other businesses from the website.  Although I don't think I'll mention Kiva (good advice Ben).

Back to the ruinas, this site (pics attached) was a place of worship for the indigenous people of Leon - before the Spanish arrived.  It sits in the middle of a round-about and is not gated or protected in anyway.  I believe it dates back to the early...well let's just say it dates back, way back.

And I've attached pictures of the hostel I'm staying at for the next 10 days - Tortuga Balooda.  It's a very laid back atmosphere in a more quiet part of town.  Suits me just fine.  The coffee is exceptional from Nica and at the hostel it's free all day.  So I'm a bit jacked up at the moment.  The cost - $7 per day and includes internet and breakfast in the morning.  Showers are cold, but with my neighbors here it's worked out good actually.

Today I will drink myself drunk to celebrate my 40th!!!  Kidding, I will have a toast though and imagine all of you sitting around the table with me enjoying the good food, great music, fantastic warm weather and the sex fest! more thing.  Everyone says "mi amor" in Nica.  It's lovely, similar to the UK "do you need a lift love?".  Very warm and peaceful.

Have finally got to your travel blog. I was stranded in Nottingham for 12 days as Inkpen was cut off with deep snow. Made it home on Sunday - now I'm housebound as we are cut off with 23cm of snow. Love hearing your sunny tales. Hope you had a fab birthday - what an exciting way to celebrate. We are all so proud of you and, of course, envious too. I can't wait to join you later on your fabulous exciting trip. Look forward to hearing more......
