Last weekend was our first anniversary and since we aren't yet allowed to take vacation days, we thought that we'd be able to celebrate it by eating some Papa John's pizza (there's one not too far away), but we decided instead to spend a day in Granada soaking up the gringo amenities.
Granada is a really nice colonial city that's just a 30 minute bus ride away from Masaya. There are a lot of ex-pats that live there, and as a result, a pretty cosmopolitan atmosphere with tons of great restaurants and places to go. We walked around a little bit and then we ate at a restaurant with some good vegetarian options. The first vegetarian menu I saw in Nicaragua looked something like this:
Most of the buildings in Granada are painted very bright and festive colors, including the cathedral in central park:
