Ometepe to León

10 Dec



A fairly uneventful day yesterday. We rose early to check out Ojo De Agua on Ometepe but it turns out we were a little too early – the gate was closed and, although we made it through, there was a bunch of cows seemingly protecting the entrance to the springs. Kel tried to make it around, but one of the cows almost charged him so we decided to bail instead of being trampled by a heard of deadly cows.

We said goodbye to Marie and Julia for the next few days and spent the rest of the day traveling – we took the very slow ferry from Ometepe to Rivas and then were convinced by a taxi driver doing the hard sell that there were no buses on a Sunday, so we taxi-d it all the way to León, getting lost only once along the way when he convinced us that there was in fact two different Leóns (we have a strong suspicion he was fleecing us – no matter).

Had a few drinks last night and are setting out today to see the sights of León (of which I don’t think there are many). Tomorrow we go volcano boarding and then – most likely – make our way aback to San Juan Del Sur.

    Kel letting a cow chase him out of the paddock, Hard to believe, we paynes have a record of being bull fighters and would certainly not be hunted out of a paddock by a south American cow, Say it isn’t so son , tell me it’s not true

      Hahahahaha! Kel definitely was the bravest and told us all to man up, but none of the rest of us were game- he was definitely disappointed in us all! x
