In Search of Soap Nuts

We're not far from where we live although we would be lost if we didn't have our guides.

Look at this road. People travel this road daily to get goods to the market, etc.

Here's the famous tree. I'll show you soap nuts next. We are harvesting this week.

Heavy traffic & stops on the way home

We were behind this horse and carriage in traffic in Masaya. It's these silly simple things that happen every day all day! You'll also hear the girls correct their dad's English pronunciation.

Here's a restaurant where we stopped for rice and beans. And the second one I would have never found on my own. Gerardo saw the "sign" and stopped for tortillas.

Medieval Machine

I was waiting for Gerardo in the car at a sawmill and could not resist recording daily life at a sawmill for you! Now we know how the pyramids were built!

Turkey in the tree

Every day around 5 pm we catch the turkey and put him in a little house to keep him safe and to keep him from the front door gobbling for food at 5am! But not this night! While we were trying to get him, which takes 3 people, he surprised us with the vertical leap to the tree.


A tour of the harvest.

Bus entertainment

This boy is probably 10 or 11 years old. He travels from bus to bus playing guitar and singing by himself. When he's done he collects coins and gets off at the next stop. There are many children working like this. There are young children standing in traffic washing windshields are selling food as the cars stop at stop lights. :(

Tour of Granada

We're on a carriage tour through Granada's cobble stone streets. There are several videos taking us through town and passed the antique train.
