Our experience continues on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua. I met someone who is also visiting here and loves to bike, so no surprise that we made plans to go out together! She likes off road biking though, of which I have minimal experience. This is an ideal place for this since the majority of the roads aren’t paved, so there are tons of places to go without ever hitting pavement.
I set out for the school, the closest landmark we could think of for a taxi to pick me up. This horse is “parked” on our street.
I wait in front of the school while the kids are arriving among more cows on the move.
We are off! The volcano is covered with clouds this morning and there are some really green fields.
We come across people picking tobacco in this field.
We stop to wash off some dust in this picturesque scene of cows by the water.
The cows also have a pretty relaxed life here.
We pass some amazing trees
How is this for a crazy, amazing tree!
Tobacco is drying here, and people are unloading the ox drawn cart that is bringing more in.
There is no end of amazing trees

Pigs and chickens in the road – all is normal 😀
We went to town and got caught in a downpour. The girls across the street had ducked into a storefront and were playing with the boy on this side of the street
More girls in the rain. Everyone just waited in front of the supermarket where we were until the rain slowed down and then they went on their way. Since the rain is warm here people don’t get too concerned about getting a little wet.
The internet went out for a couple days, but it is repaired now and we are back on line. Yeah! More posts and photos are coming.
