At the beginning of December, my parents made a trip down here to visit us and finally see for themselves the things we've been talking and blogging about for the last year and a half.
We started the trip in Masaya, and the first day went to Coyotepe, the old political prison up on a hill overlooking Masaya. There were many dark passageways and a lot of bats, but if nothing else it made our house seem much nicer in comparison.
old lion that they had. We were shocked to find a new, spry lion with a mane and everything in his place. A zookeeper told me that the old lion died about 8 months ago, and that this one came fairly recently.
We ended the trip by visiting the edge of the Laguna de Apoyo, but were disappointed that the water was really high so there was no beach. It was still nice to sit and relax by the water and wind down. Back in Granada, my mom and I climbed to the top of another church belltower and took some pictures of Granada's scenery.
