Quick Trip

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.

  1. Sounds like a fun little trip! I like the photos of the old church too. You'll have to tell us all about the castle and markets when you go back. I forget, you didn't have your camera with you when you saw all those weapons and tanks in concrete, right?
