Here we go again!! Right now im in Nicaragua having spent the last 36 hours travelling. I am sitting in a little internet cafe/laundry opposite the hostel trying to use time until its an appropriate time to sleep!!
The flights were fine, I made a friend in my 10 hour stopover in LA and we went to Venice Beach and Santa Monica having a look around.
Arrived in Managua (the capital of Nicaragua) and took a taxi to the bus stop for Leon, then took a bus. In Leon too this wierd little taxi that is basically a box attached to a bicycle that people (kids) ride around in. Life flashed before my eyes more than once.. Pretty sure im getting ripped off left right and centre, but thats part of it and im too tired to care!
From the very little that ive seen the town in small with old style buildings, although i havent seen much. Apparently tomorrow is a festival in Leon similar to Halloween that celebrates the Virgin Mary or something like that. Should be very interesting!!! The hostel is amazing. Its pretty big, has a bar and restaurant and a courtyard that is gorgeous!
So far my lack of Spanish is proving a little difficult.. think i may be changing my plan to include a week long spanish course. Basics would be nice!
Im off to probably eat food in the hostel restuarant and be asleep by 8
