Location: Leon, Nicaragua

MapMelting Streets and Cool Courtyards

Leon is a city of secret courtyards, perhaps leftover from the days when Leon was the centre of Sardinista opposition in Nicaragua. I´m learning to live like the Nicaraguans: siesta by day and venture out at about 5pm when it is slightly cooler. The lava of nearby volcanos seems to flow under Leonese streets.

I´m hoping to climb Cerro Negro Volcano this week with an organisation that supports local homeless children. www.quetzaltrekkers.com
