April, April – I do what I want!!
After the usual 1 ½ hours border paper work and the first terrible kilometres I made it to Leon.
A lot of history and chaos try to combine here and the result is a relaxed, busy, big town.
Also the old and new, tradition and trend is well mixed.
Horse carriages are seen as well as fancy cars & fashion.
I explore a lot by walking and on a nice day I ride with Fusae to the beach.
Totally nice beach, half-moon after half-moon bay, some rocks and hardly any tourist.
It is nice to explore at the clean beach and have a drink here and there.
The sound of the ocean get mixed with some music from the bar and maybe some working noises.
It looks like it is only a question of time till this little paradise changes.
Its easy to find a welding shop which does it immediately!
On the outskirts of Managua I ride my way to Granada.
Catch even the right road.
Many time I have to cross where to go.
It helps to orientate after the sun and maybe the direction of the wind than searching for signs ;o)
At the ferry jetty beach is on Sundays a lot going on.
About a quarter of the island roads are cobblestone and the rest...?!
I swim to a money island and have on the way back a yet with the fisher man.
At the hostel dock it is photo time with Fusae.
At the 5th day back to the mainland, I see one more historic interesting town which is changing to a tourist destination.
It is crazy, just cross the border and the wealth is smiling at me – I’m in Costa Rica.
