If I had to describe the island in one word, I might say enchanting. The light on Ometepe was so striking and beautiful. It enhanced not only the jungle, but the animals and people, too. This post is basically a photo dump of some of my favorite photos from my month-long stay on Ometepe (though really, they’re all my favorite :)). Enjoy!
Last but not least, this kitten was one of the farm pets and had just been born the week before I arrived. I loved watching her discover new things each day, and fight the dogs for food 🙂
I love reminiscing about Nicaragua so much that I’m thinking of doing even more posts on it- maybe one specifically about the people, maybe one about the waterfalls. What do you guys think? Interested? (and don’t worry, I still have some California and Europe-themed posts coming up, too!)
While you think that over, here are some weekend links:
- A list about being happier that’s all about letting go
- How cool is this Jazz Age Lawn Party? So glad there’s another one in August!
- Is my sense of humor too weird? (via The Everywhereist)
- I turned 30 last June, but I can identify with a lot of this post
- Fascinating peek into history: Langston Hughes’ collection of rent party advertisements from the 40’s and 50’s in Harlem, NY
- El Zopilote: the permaculture farm/hostel I stayed at in Nicaragua
