...maybe some images will make up for the lack of blog updates! Traveling with children surely does not leave much time for self reflection, journaling, blogging... We are now in Nica. Since the last post we left Guatemala and headed to Copan Ruinas, Honduras.
After a couple days exploring the ruins, museum, and town, we raced through the rest of Honduras towards Nica. We spent a night near the Gulf of Fonseco before hitting the border.
Our first stop in Nica was at Playa Jiquilillo, at Nate's Rancho Esperanza. The girls made friends with some local ninas.
We took a break from the beach and explored Leon...
...but quickly headed back to the beach at Las Penitas.
The morning we left we tried to help out some fellow travelers but couldn't get their car to start.
We drove past Managua and up to the rim of a volcano whose crater has filled with a lake -- Laguna Apoyo -- our favorite place so far.
We are now in Granada and are headed to Ometepe on the ferry tomorrow.
