Last week I went to Nicaragua. Had planned to stay one night, stayed two. Only because I slept through my alarm and missed the bus. That worked out great, though, because I got to see a lot I hadn’t seen before.
When I arrived in Rivas, I caught a bicycle taxi to the bus station so that I could take the less than $1 ride to San Juan del Sur. Great decision because I likely would’ve never discovered the mercado otherwise. So the day I overslept, I decided to revisit it. The bus ride out there was fantastic, actually, because I had my camera out i got noticed pretty quickly. And the locals on the back of the bus were super friendly and it afforded me the opportunity to get a lot of shots I probably wouldn’t have otherwise. Great time. So I went, I shot, and then got back to the hotel just after sunset. And that’s when I discovered I had set my alarm for PM not AM. So I didn’t actually sleep through my alarm.
No problem. I had met some cool people in SJDS, hung out with them for a bit that night, talked to some other people and the next day, I came back. And coming back made me wish I had a boat. Because traveling by bus is easy, but it’s soooooooo long.
Great, great time.
