Today we woke up at the early hour of 7 in Nicaragua’s capital, Managua. We boarded our Magic School Bus and ventured on a 2 hour ride to Matagalpa. After settling in the hostel and learning some safety precautions and rules we were finally able to explore the city on a walking tour. Although sporadic rain showers threatened to ruin our city tour, once we stepped outside our “castle” the skies cleared. Phew! It was great to see the sights, get acquainted, and feel Matagalpa’s wonderful mountain breeze. After our city tour we came back to our hostel had some free time and enjoyed our first official dinner; gallopinto, eggs, and fried cheese. Tomorrow will be a tight packed schedule which means we are checking out early. Over and out.
