Feb5: Isla Mancarron
_I woke up at 5am and i just couldn't sleep: a lot of thoughts running in my head, typical of when full moon is approaching. The lake was as flat as a table, not a breath of wind, light gray sky. Surreal.
Later I discovered a strange phenomenon: apparently when it's cloudy in Isla San Fernando wifi doesn't work. This is the explanation that several serious locals gave me today when I tried few times to reset the connection...so bizarre!
Then i went for a walk along the shore and I discovered that Sunday is bath day here in Solentiname, especially for males: kids and adults are all in the lake semi naked and full of soap... I felt i was intruding their privacy : s
Early pm ride to Isla Mancarron on a private lancha for $15 and almost forgot camera and laptop in the hotel. The new island is the main one of the archipelago and Sunday is baseball day: everybody is having a good time at the local game, dancing and eating. Actually it's the first time that I see locals partying: so far Nica people seem to be more quiet than the other central America neighbors.
We found a great room at Viacom, a new albergue just right of the dock. We have the whole house and deck all for ourselves: there are only 4 tourists on the island including us.
When we arrive at the comedor for dinner we get informed that we should have ordered it in advance and they have nothing for us to eat, anywhere in the island... Moments of panic... Then reason comes back to me and we end up basically buying goods out of their pantry! Cans of tuna and peas and an onion made our dinner.
Note: every day we encounter a lot of wildlife, take a look at the picture page!
