Matagalpa City

Matagalpa City

This is a view over Matagalpa city. The hill is Loma de San Tomas (Saint Thomas Hill) and the houses seen are some of the poorer within the city. The land on the hill was aportioned out by the government to the poor not too many years ago, funny enough, right next to an upper-class development!

La Conchita on La Celebracion de Purisima

This is la Conchita, the virgin Mary and a platter of candied apples. Look up La purisima to find out more. It is one of the biggest holidays in Nicaragua, religious of course.

The Beautiful Miss Clare!

We found an amazing (though expensive!) restaurant in Granada, right on the square where Captain Morgan, the infamous pirate, set up 18 cannons in the 1700s, during one of the three times that Granada was sacked.
