Day 5

What a long a wonderful day, leaving the Villa at 9am and getting home at 6pm.
We started with touring the Granada Islands, which are 365 islands that were formed over 10,000
years ago when Volcano Mobamcho exploded.

After a sack lunch at a park we walked through Granada, one of the oldest cities in Central America.
It has an array of bright colored buildings many of which have inside court yards.

Next we tried out our Spanish with the vendors in a local market.   

The last stop was one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time.  We went to view the active volcano, Maysaya.  It was huge!

Yes, that is smoke from the volcano!

Then dinner, playtime with the girls from 7-8:30, a game of fishbowl, showers and off to bed!
Full day! We are back to work tomorrow to serve more people of Nicaragua!
