Situated in western Nicaragua, Granada is historically one of the most important cities in the country, both economically and politically. It has a rich colonial heritage, which is seen throughout its architecture.
Our plane landed in Managua, Nicaragua on April 23rd, where we were picked up by a taxi arranged by G Adventures and taken to our first stop of the trip – Granada. Our drive to Granada was beautiful – reminded me of Sri Lanka, with its colourful houses and palm trees and flowers. Bougainvilleas were everywhere! Parrots and other beautiful birds were flying over us from tree to tree, and the sky was filled with the sounds of different birds.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I was given the amazing opportunity to join Photographers Without Borders (PWB) last month on a photodocumentary workshop in Nicaragua, acting as both a customer service rep for the organization and an assistant to the workshop instructor. Before I was given this opportunity, I had honestly never even heard of Nicaragua and I had no idea as to what region of the world it was in.
