From the Corn islands I flew back to Nicaragua mainland and stayed for another night in Granada. Together with Justin (from Chicago USA) I took a minivan to San Jorge to take a ferry to Ometepe island.
This island in Lake Nicaragua consists of two volcanoes. We stayed three nights in Moyogalpa at the foot of the Volcán Concepción. From there we biked to Charco Verde National Park and Punta Jesus to enjoy the beautiful sceneries and the loud hawler monkeys in the trees.
Then we moved to Santa Cruz, on the hill of the Volcán Maderas, for another 5 days. Justin participated in a 25km run on the island. I celebrated the finish of the participants on Santa Domingo beach with Justin drinking some free beers. The life in the small rural villages on the island was touching and the stars in the night were bright. I wonder how life on the island will change when the Chinese start creating the Caribean-Pacific canal that will cross the lake. I guess I should be happy I visited this place before that happens.
