Nica Pt 6: Grenada

Got into town after a crazy ride with a driver blasting Disco the whole way. Got a bed at the Bearded Monkey hostel. I immediately met
a gang of Swiss and Aussies and headed out to pool and drinks with them.


Grenada is the most touristy city in Nicaragua. They even have an Irish bar, which we ended up at.

The next day, Weds Apr 18, or Day 132 of traveling, I wandered to Poets Park and the old train station.



One thing I'd noticed is a lack of trains in MX and Central America.






I toured the Cacoa Museum and found this nice hotel when I wandered in the back.


I then wandered towards the water from the central square.
Bikers are the same everywhere.

I got accosted by a literally crazy tean but a local shopkeeper chased him off.





I found a little sculpture garden.








I suddenly hear the most beautiful music. It was coming from somewhere up a side street so I followed my ears. I eventually found the source
inside a bared church. A kid practicing piano. He wasn't perfect and was obviously preacticing the piece but the accoustics were magical. I tried
to record him but it just didn't come out on my camera.


Here's a link to it. Ignore the video. Maybe someone can tell me the song.

Hanging out waiting for a friend and found my lucky number.


I walked by this.


I headed to O'Shea's, the Irish bar for a change of diet and to catch a soccer game. Barcelona lost. Food porn.


Met the gang later and played in a Trivia game at one of the bars. We came in first and were awarded to bottles of Rum which we proceded two consume.
