I traveled in Nicaragua for the first time in the summer of
2006 with Erik the Pilot. These photographs are from Granada, Lake Nicaragua,
and Ometepe Island where we stayed at the Finca Magdelena.

Bald headed and bearded warrior from the
Song Jiang's gang of rightous, merry men.
Colonial Granada, Nicaragua. I think the
country did good to NOT make this nice town its capital. The capital cities of
Central America - except Panama - are places for ruin an squalor. Granada is a
Ferry boat from Rivas to Ometepe Island,
Nicaragua. The great inland Lake of Nicaragua once had sharks in it, but the
Nicaraguans polluted it until they all died.
The volcanoes of Ometepe Island rising out
of the sea. You can climb these volcanoes.
Monkeys in the trees on Ometempe Island.
Erik the Pilot and I were throwing stones at this tree to get some mangoes, and
the monkeys were throwing sticks at us. We won though, because we eventually got
Pre-historic petraglyphs stone carvings on
a rock by the Finca Magdalena on Ometempe Island in Nicaragua.

through Central America with in the summer of 2006.
The Flora of Ometepe Island, Nicaragua.
Rowboat on the shore of Lake Nicaragua on
Ometepe near the Finca Magdalena. This is a good place to stay on the island,
you can sleep in a hammock for a dollar.
