The Cultural Streets of Masaya

After we finished lunch, we realized that we had to give a lot of school supplies to the local children to fulfill all of the products we had sold back in the States over the holidays. We decided to walk back to Hotel Central to email some of the local NGOs and get as many school supplies in the hands of local kids in Nicaragua. On the way home we took the long route home so that we could get back into the swing of Nica life. We were both so happy to be back. We walked over towards our favorite part of town, Parque Central. On the way we saw all of the beautiful old big churches where many of the Nicaraguan families go every Sunday.

Across the street from the church is a pretty little park with lots of trees and benches making it a cool place to sit and relax. As we walked by we got a boost of energy while looking at the bright colors in the park.

On the way home we saw a lot of old graffiti art. Both JB and I are super intrigued by street art and have made it a hobby to check out street art whenever we travel somewhere new. Each town, city and country has it’s own style and it comes out in many different forms and street art is one unique form that can uniquely express these differences.

Masaya is always celebrating and luckily today was no different. It just so happened that as we were walking there was a parade going through town. We sat and watched it for a few minutes to admire the unique costumes and further understand what life is like in Nicaragua.

The ten minute walk ended up taking over an hour. But we loved every second of it. We were back and excited for the next adventure. We got online and got right back into the swing of things. We didn’t know where we would be next month, next week or even the next day. All we knew was that we couldn’t wait to find out.

  1. The colors of the town are so beautiful and vibrant! I love the architecture and styling that is so different and opposite of what you see here in the States. I hope to someday visit for sure.
