Dad, Brian and I are having a wonderful time.  We received the royal treatment from CEPRODEL – a personal ride from Managua down to Granada, stopping at lake Tiscapa, Masaya, and an incredible look out point in the small village of Katharina.  We’ve been wining and dining splendidly, last night was a Marimba concert and folk dance performance in the Hotel Dario in Granada, a breathtakingly beautiful restored building, while sipping rum and coctails.

It’s nice to get away from León and realize how much I have started to feel like home there, and how nice it is to have friends and ‘family’.  Have you watched this little video? I’m very excited about heading to the island of Ometepe today, but also very excited about indroducing family to this Nica family very soon.
