Day 46 to Day 47

November 22, 2005: Granada, Nicaragua
November 23, 2005: Granada, Nicaragua

Yesterday was a very uneventful (ie wonderful) day of lounging by the pool and suntanning, so I´m sad to admit that I have no pictures to post, or no exciting stories for the day, aside perhaps, from me getting bit by a fire ant in what will remain an undiclosed area which was a lot more painful than you´d expect! Today we hit up the local wafflehouse in the morning for some killer strawberry pancakes, wandered around town taking pictures, and then spent the afternoon heading to Lagoona Apoyo once again. Over breakfast some very helpful ladies informed us that there was in fact a real road to the Lagoona! The road made today´s journey much smoother than our previous one and we had a few drinks under a straw hut right on the lagoon´s edge which was very relaxing. The water was incredibly warm in the lagoon. In the tourist guide it states the temperature is usually 85 degrees Fahrenheit in the lagoon. As tempting as a dip was, we didn´t want to ride the bikes back soaking wet so we decided not to take a swim.
