Some potters had a lot of fun. This pot is holding his belly and poking his tongue out.

Close to the centre, there is a bit more attention to detail and colour, but the average street in Granada still has many beautiful Colonial buildings.

Amazingly, it is hard to find a good cup of coffee in Nicaragua. But in a city like Granada, so heavily visited, they know the tourists are seeking a good brew. This is right on the main square.

I just love the old buildings... and I confess I dont think of that kind of thing when I consider Central America - narrow minded of me I guess.

Hope you got your fix of caffine somewhere!
