We decided half-way through our lessons that we needed a day off to absorb and take a break. So we decided to head out to a crater lake nearby. A friend of ours from UVic named Sophie has a cottage on this lake and urged us to go out there and check it out.
So we got up early one morning and rented a little motorcycle. With the two of us on board we cruised out to the crater and attempted to find our friend´s place. After some wrong turns and some really rough gravel roads that we should not have been on, we finally found her place.
Laguna de Apoyo is a beautiful volcanic crater lake with CRYSTAL clear water. A super nice place. Needless to say we spent the day lazing around, swimming (although there is not much relief in the warm waters) and working on our tans (almost there). Sophie´s family has got the right idea owning property on this lake and I urge anyone who comes down here to check it out for yourself. Thanks Sophie!
Best story of the day. On the way back into Granada we were driving around looking for specific
store I had to go to and if you´ve ever been in a developing country you know how traffic works - any way possible as long as it keeps moving, no regard to the rules of the road (if any exist). Well we finally found the store (there are no building numbers in C.A.) which was on the opposite side of the street, so I busted a simple little U-turn and slid into a parking spot in front of the store. Well of course you can guess it by now, I got observed by a policewoman who issued me a ticket for perfoming an illegal u-turn - what are the chances eh? Haha, good thing that the cheaper standards of living down here also mean cheaper tickets ($12). I think I can afford this one, just this once 😉 So don´t go commiting any u-turns while in Nicaragua you hear?
