In a moment of spontaneity, Manfred and I decided to head to Mayasa, a small town about thirty minutes from Managua. We only had a little bit of time to be there, but we had fun! Here is what we saw:
I loved the use of color in all of the houses. This blue building is actually the Mayor`s office. You do not see many official US buildings painted like this.
|This is pretty common here too. The wall is all the same and there is not anything to distinguish between these two houses except the colors that are there. I wonder how they decided where to put the line?|
This old church was awesome, and with dusk falling the pictures turned out pretty cool too.
I would definitely liked a little more time in Mayasa, but we had to hurry to catch the bus. I hear there are a couple of really great markets that sell loads of touristy stuff. One of them is even in a old, little castle! With the city so close. I will for sure be going back to see that.
