Granada sits on Lake Nicaragua- a huge lake
Granada reminds me of Antigua even though it is not as modern. People here are very laid back. In the afternoon, they pull out their wicker chairs and rattan rockers. They sit in front of their apartments or homes on the sidewalk and visit with neighbors. The flowers, foliage, and birds are beautiful! I love sitting in our hotel courtyard and watching the birds fly in for food and water. I am not real fast getting their pictures.
A typical breakfast here consists of black beans, rice, salsa, scrambled egg, wheat toast, marmalade, juice, lots of fresh fruit, and coffee. It is very nourishing and stays with you.
This morning, we are heading for Costa Rica. We hope to spend a day or two on the beach. Then, we would like to go to a national park. It takes forever to get between two places. Our wish is that we can find a boat ride when we get to Costa Rica.
