Thursday – One Week

It’s funny. In a way you can get an idea of what a place is about in a day or two, but it can also take years to really know a place. We have seen a lot in our first week here, but I also feel like we have barely begun to know what life here is like. This is a big island with many other towns and things to see, and this island is only a part of this country.

Yesterday (Thursday) we decided to go biking to San Jose del Sur, a town on the south side of this part of the island about an hour away by bike.  The road took us through green fields and farm areas, and through some small towns. I didn’t think about our relation to the volcano and that we would be seeing another side, or the fact that we could see the other volcano as well so we had some great surprises in store.

We are really enjoying this island!  Friday we will be mostly home for various people who stop by on Fridays. Then, on Saturday, we want to bike in the other direction to see what it is like on the north side.

    Kris, I have really been enjoying your posts and pictures of your vacation in Nicaragua. It looks lovely! I just love the traditional home with the full wrap around porch, the volcano, the lake, and all of the lush vegetation. Enjoy your stay, and thanks for sharing!

    Such a beautiful place! From your pictures, there seems to be very few cars. Has that been your experience so far?


    • Yes, very few cars. Everything has to come over on a boat, and most people cant afford cars. There are people on foot, bicycles, horses, and a lot of small motorcycles. There are some buses, work trucks, and very few cars. A guy today said you could sleep in the middle of the road! You almost could.
