more spanish lessons and volcanos!

I can at least understand people (mostly) when they speak! answering is a bit more difficult.

Thursday 11.12.13
Another girl arrived today who will be living with me! The morning was spanish class and then in the afternoon i did a cooking class at the school. We cooked empanadas, fritos and chicken with jalepenos. The empanadas were platano which is like a savoury banana that is boiled for 45 minutes, squashed and then fried again, with cheese inside it and fritos are raw platanos that are fried. We also had salad! hallelujah!! I am craving fresh food and am definitely feeling all the oil im eating.

At night, another girl at the school wanted to watch american football and said there was a bar that would probably play it here so at 7.30 we headed out. At the bar they said they couldnt find it but i reckon its because there was a sport on with Leon in it (which is another city in Nicaragua). So we finished our drinks and went onto the main tourist street were we found shisha! we had a berry favour that was awesome! we decided to head back home at about 10 thinking the next night would be a big one.

Again had spanish class then in the afternoon went on a tour to masaya market, volcan masaya and some bat caves. Masaya market was like any other touristy market. It most had nick nacks, bracelets, clothing and bags all super expensive. they did have some cool hammacks though that i was super tempted to buy but i have no idea where id eventually put it.. we then headed to volcan masaya, which is the most active volcano in the area apparently. Saw a crater with heaps of smoke and then 2 other craters than were just full of plants. We headed to the bat caves which was interesting but i cnt sy im a fan of bats..!! We saw an alter where hundreds of years ago there used to be human sacrifice and then in 1980 was used as a secret hide out to drink when it was prohibited. we headed back at about 7.30 and i was knackered so our potential big night was very small haha
