Friday, first full day on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua

We spent Friday relaxing a bit, walking around the area, meeting some of the neighbors, and getting a feel for the house and area where we were to spend the next three weeks.

The house is fantastic, open and spacious and just the kind of house I would make. The dog, though he is still a puppy and was overcome with excitement, is a very good dog. I see some instruction and lots of walks to burn off excess energy and we will have a lot of fun. The area and the people – there will be much more to say in the days ahead! Today though, we will start with a few photos.

Whew! I’m not sure where today has gone. Tomorrow is another day, so when I am more rested I will post more photos and updates.

    I loved all of it! Those trees are so different. One almost looks like an ash tree except for the leaves.


  2. those blue birds are called magpie jays or ‘hurracas’ in spanish.. they are loud and funny and love to raid the banana crop!

    that tall tree that stretches to the sky (you mentioned one in the other post) is a ceiba, i am almost sure.
    lovely photos,and i am so glad that you both are there taking care of debbie and ron’s place!



    • Hurracas, yes! Thanks. People tell me things and I forget what they said. I think that is a ceiba tree too. We have them in Panama so I looked them up. They are about the biggest and most impressive trees around. This gig worked out wonderfully for both of us, and I’m really happy to have the experience of being here.

    I hope you enjoy Ometepe as much as my husband and I did. The people are wonderful and generous. Have fun and make sure you learn the song of the island!


    • Song of the island? I will have to ask about that, thanks. Yes, the people are warm and friendly and a real pleasure. I’m glad we are here for a while instead of just passing though so we can get to know some of them a bit.

    Ometepe! If by any chance you meet an older lady, Esinda, who lived and worked in Costa Rica during the late 80’s tell her the Panamanian friend of La sra. Lidia, where she worked, sends his regards.
