I got back to Granada this afternoon after three days and four nights in Ometepe with my new friends Ben and Sam (yes, together we're Seth, Benjamin, Samuel). Ometepe was on the short list for a revised version of the seven wonders of the natural world this year, and walking around there you can easily see why. Tomorrow's a travel day (off to Costa Rica), so I'm hoping to spend the trip putting digital pen to digital paper to give you some further insight. I'll have some pictures up tomorrow night as well. Be prepared to hear stories of magical restorative oases, American gangsters, Esmeralda the best grillmaster ever, and the most physically challenging thing I have ever done (hint: if you're going to climb a volcano, wear real shoes).
