Spanish Lessons in a Lagoon

Laguna de Apoyo

This is the Laguna de Apoyo - the spot where I had my Spanish lesson on Wednesday

I went to the Lagoon today to have my Spanish lessons.  The Laguna de Apoyo is about 30 minutes by taxi from where I am living in Catarina.  It is absolutely gorgeous.

Today there were no people around, and I took my Spanish courses in between swimming breaks.  The water was really warm, and clean.  The cleanliness of swimming water is difficult to find in Nicaragua for fresh water.  It was beautiful.

After lunch, I took a nap in a hammock for an hour before heading back to the house where I am staying.

Random thoughts:
  • Many people carry machetes around here.  Although it may seem scary at first, it is how they landscape, and they use it for their work
  • It is common to fill up your car with gasoline and keep the engine running, I saw this on a number of occasions.

      Hi. It was great, I went to another area of the lagoon today to learn, and it was so peaceful.

      The engine was kept running, because the battery was dead in the car….nonetheless, I thought it was dangerous, but what do i know? haha
