    Default Saturday voyage

    We're departing Saturday morning for Managua, arriving late in the evening. Returning to the US after New Years. Internet access will be sketchy...

    I think it'll be Masaya, Esteli, probably some Diriamba, maybe Granada.

    The Chamuca trees are lit up like Christmas decorations. Here is the lakefront park from final approach.

    It is soo much easier with a window seat in first, eh?

    They do light it up. Saw that a couple months ago. We were curving around it so I missed the first good shot.

    We visited Masaya today, bought some gifts in the market which was pretty quiet for being Christmastime. Visited Zepeda's guitar shop, then Volcan Masaya.

    No way we could get up early enough for sunrise.

    Estelí's newest skyscraper. I hardly recognize this place after a five year absence.

    Errr volcano sunset? Why 5 years between visits?

    Pic looks like its going to be a large hotel. They are building a big hotel on Bluefields Bay. Looked almost done when I was there last. Have to wonder if the investment was made because of the canal, the road being finished, or because of the tourism possibility. I just don't see many money travelers passing through there so wondering how it will do.

    MY guess, forced savings (i.e. there is no place else to put the money). If you leave it in the bank it will be dribbled away or stolen, so better to buy real estate. 2 I know of in Esteli are old tobacco money branching out into other investments.

    Ate jumbo shrimp here last month, pricey upscale place hidden in plain site a couple blocks off the Panam.
