Jan 24, 2009 - Rivas to Masaya, Nicaragua
We saw a brochure on the town of Masaya and it looked pretty interesting so we picked it as our destination for the day. It was only a couple of hours away so had a leisurely breakfast and took our time. It was nice to adopt a relaxed pace. It seems we have been going pretty hard for a couple of weeks. As we left Rivas it occurred to me that the scene in front of me was becoming common place for us. The road was filled with ox carts, motos, buses taxies, trucks, bicycles and people walking with baskets or sacks on their heads. We are really...Jump to full entry
Mar 31, 2008 - Parque National Volcan Masaya
Headed off to Parque National Volcan Masaya today, for a wander around the volcano. Was just me and a Belgian couple (Stephanie and Kristof), so we had the undivided attention of our tour guide Roberto. Although Masaya is a fairly small (I think it´s only about 700m high, but I´ll check that) hill, they have a road built all the way up to the active crater, with a very large car park, so you don´t have to expend any energy getting there (once you´re there being a totally different matter). As you enter the park, they give you a slip of...Jump to full entry
Dec 8, 2007 - In a moment my celebrity status vanished...
Short summary. Still in Masaya, love it. Went to Volcano Masaya today - well worth going to. Today was a very busy day. I am so glad I did Volcano Masaya this morning as at the moment it is raining buckets... Anyway, for today's story about how I was a local celebrity.... It started off with more of a distraction. I knew I had to change some money before I went to Volcano Masaya but somehow I got distracted and sat in the shade by the new cathedral listening to the passionate singing coming from the service... and I forgot to change money....Jump to full entry
Nov 19, 2007 - Doorway to hell.... if you believe in it.
Today I went to another volcano. This time it was volcan Masaya, which essentially is a nice friendly drive up volcano, except that one of the craters is very much active. Looking into the crater you can see smoke and suffocate on the fumes. Apparently at night you can see the glow from the lava bubling away in the crater, but apprently we had good visibility today and could see almost the bottom of the crater, just not enough for lava. Oh whats this hell nonsense.... The spaniards erected a cross on top of the volcano because they believed...Jump to full entry
