Tropical Paradise




Okay, NOW I need to find a place that will let me upload pictures because I took some great ones today! Google ¨Laguna de Apoyo¨ for an idea. Here´s what it was: Medium size but WAY deep (200 meters) lake in an old volcano crater. Lush rainforest, total quiet, palm trees, a dock and a floating one to swim to, kayaks and inner tubes, lots of hammocks. It was beautiful, relaxing, and a lot cooler than here in town! The water wasn´t that cold, apparently it is heated by some underwater vents, but it was still refreshing. Ahhhh....


However, even tropical paradises have their rainstorms....how else would everything stay so green?

Now I need to get some pictures! Tomorrow´s plan is to explore Granada more, and find a tour up Volcan Mombacho (or is it Momotumbo? One of those....). They even have some horseback tours. Then, I¨ll start planning my trip to Ometepe. I met a girl today who thinks she´ll be there over the weekend, so maybe we´ll meet again! Adios for now....it is, after all, HORA FELIZ in my hostel! =)

Amazing! It really reminds me (in parts) of Hawaii!
