Managua Adventure ....

---Sunday ---

I finally managed to convince Becky to upgrade to a nicer hotel.

I think the fact that when we walked around we were warned three times about getting robbed in that neighborhood helped.

We checked into Hotel Sol y Luna. A MUCH nicer place, and to me worth the extra cash.

We ended up having lunch/breakfast at nearby giraffe themed placed. I kid you not.

We went back to the hotel to kill time. Watched the final minutes of the Euro Cup where Spain defeated Germany.

Afterwards we got dressed and headed for the restaurant.

I took Becky to the Intermezzo del Bosque, a restaurant on the outskirts of the city with breathtaking views of the city and surrounded by nature. The food was excellent, and the cheesecake was delicious.

We went back into the city to the National theater Ruben Dario and the Ballet folkclorico de Tepenáhuatl.

Overall it was a fun evening. Unlike my date, I like dressing up. She'll learn someday.

Tomorrow we head back to Granada, then one last time to Managua on Tuesday when Beck leaves the country. Then phase II of the trip begins: The lone traveller.
