Beauty of Granada, Nicaragua

January 28th, 2013 in Our Travels Worldwide

The family and I are on a visa run to Granada, Nicaragua. I cannot get enough of this city and my camera won’t stop clicking away at it. The colors, stone, tile, iron, patterns, doors, windows, fountains, cathedrals, and buildings. The details too; faucets, etching in the glass, doorknobs, pottery, archways, sigh…everything. We go on long walks here and I soak in everything. The way the older ladies walk around with ruffled aprons. How the men take their family to and from in a carriage on the back of a horse. Watching all the little families pile on the same bike (they do this in Costa Rica as well).

There is a lot of poverty in Nicaragua but it is surrounded in beauty. Let me show you quite a few snapshots. Get ready this post is going to take awhile to load onto your computer. I tell ya this town would be just a dream for artistic minds, I am sure it already is.

    Beautiful city. Let’s go there. :-) When we travel to Europe I am always taking pictures of doors. I love old, beautiful, carved doors. Nicaragua’s architecture is beautiful, reminds me of Europe. Just love the doors, windows, fountains and all of it, even darling Shae in front of brick wall.

    I love the tile. I am a sucker for brightly colored things. What a fun adventure.
