Found Jesus, and more...

My arms were pretty sore from surfing so I decided to spend the day exploring San Juan del Sur.  First, I walked up to the Jesus statue (and the church underneath). 
What a gorgeous view.

This is where some rich Nicaraguans hang out...

Coolest grasshopper ever.

 I got a ride down the mountain from a nice couple from Managua, so I could explore more of the city.

I love the beach shanties. 

This has been one of my favorite churches so far.  So simple, inside and out.

I decided today would be a good day to buy gifts (you know, because I missed my entire families' birthdays).  The man at the cigar shop was very knowledgeable about Nicaraguan tobacco (but it was super hot in there).

I discovered a street artisan, Selvin.  His work is one of a kind and totally natural.  He threw in some earrings with the purchase of a necklace so I sat with him for over an hour while he made them.


Once again, love the colors.

  1. Found Jesus! How funny you are... The colors are amazing there as well. I think it's your mad photography skills that makes them "pop". I love the pink bags being carried on the man's head contrasting with the brilliant blue building.

    Can't wait to see your new earrings and necklace. Wow. What an adventure.
