My Day Off

Actually, I took a two days off but they felt like one. Here is some of the fun I had around town. I got to visit Jinotepe which is about thirty minutes from where I live. Not bad and we travelled by bus, it was interesting to say the least. On the way there, we got into it with the driver about how much to pay and on the way back the bus broke down. I'll tell you this, the food that the friends prepared for us was so good that it hardly mattered and I got my first pedicure too which was luxurious. Just another day in the life.

The other photos are in Laguna de Apollo. It is a beautiful lake that we can swim in just twenty minutes from my door. Some of the English group and I went and spent the day swimming and laying around like bums. It was a nice treat.

2010 LSN Convention

These two in the drama are my friends from Granada. They were great as the couple who went back to Jerusalem just in time for 70 CE.

Here is a group of us from the convention and Masaya we have every reason to smile.

This young man is the one baptized last weekend. He was warmly welcomed and deaf as well.

All in all another great assembly. Not sure but it could be our last one in this location if they decide to sell the property. You know what that could be coming to town. I still have a hard hat to wear too!


Caballos en la Calle

This is a little something that I meant to share earlier. It's that time of the year in Granada when it gets harder and harder to get to sleep because of the religious festivals happening every weekend and even during some weekdays.

This little "caballo" even started around 10pm and finished around midnight. Horses and at least half of the 100,000 residents marched in front of my window to music and horse trots. This is the view from my balcony apartment. I decided instead of trying to get some sleep that I'd actually get a look at the show.

BTW tonight is another event. They've got lights and decorations up and bands playing in the street. Not cohesively or anything but very loud horns and drums in conflict with each other. I don't think I'll be getting to bed anytime soon so I'm going to stay up late and watch movies.
