After León, we headed toward Granada, an old colonial town on the edge of Lago de Nicaragua. Despite getting salmonella from some chicken at the mall in Managua and spending a day and a half confined to the hotel room, I loved Granada! It was quaint, pretty, and had lots to do nearby.
Like León, Granada is full of old churches. This one had beautiful wood rafter ceilings on the inside.
This street leading down from the central part of town was flanked by outdoor seating from the corresponding restaurants. We enjoyed the sunset with some coffee and ice cream!
These boys had quite the act going as this extremely tall doll who likes to dance. Alex passed on the music (since it would have been the second time around) and utilized his tip money for a photo instead.
There was a long line of horse carriages along one edge of the parque central, ready and willing to offer a ride!
We found this church during our wanderings and headed up to the top of the bell tower to get a better view of the city.
The tops of bell towers are our new favorite photo locales. From the tower, we got a less obstructed view of this pretty, yellow church.
