Yes they have volcanos some active some inactive but what really catches your eye is Lake Grenada when you see it in the picture here it is nothing compared to the grandness of it up close.

There is a lot of trash on the side of the road and just about as many stray dogs and cats. You'll see a few of the pictures I got of animals that actually had homes and how hungry they look. I did get sick once but with the help of the fabulous sister I stayed with Karla in the red dress I had pharmacy drugs in me for twelve hours after which I was feeling loads better. I can't wait to go back. February is the sign language convention and my hope is to be back with the friends there by then. 

Once you get past that you see the warmth of the people and the friends. Everyone speaks Spanish and few spoke English so if you're interested in getting better at speaking Spanish this 
is the place for you. 
spent most of 
my time in Grenada and Managua and I had a short
 visit to a Sign Language congregation in Masaya. (pronounced: messiah)

All in all it was a fabulous trip topped off with a couple of great days at the English convention reconnecting with friends old and new. There were parts on the program from brothers as far away as Manchester, England. With accents that sound like the Geico gecko :)

Thanks to everyone who helped me get there and if anyone is even thinking about going to serve where the need is Nicaragua is a great place to start. Every language group has a need which includes: Nicaraguan sign language, English and Spanish. There is a place for everyone :)
