Drove from Esteli to Masaya , gasoline is $1.60 a liter, the country side is very clean but we find the people not very friendly towards tourists. We camped at the vulcano Malaya and were the only campers there, had a nice hike up to the peak and were rewarded with a beautiful view.
Toada we drove to Granada, very nice colonial city, I would say better than Antigua.
From there we drove south to Playa Madera, recomended by the guide book a sa wonderful beach.
No mention that the road there is for 4 wheel drive only and when we realised that, it was too late to turn around. We made it down and it is a surfer "paradies" the beach is nice enough.
So Norbert put on the snow chains in preparation for the drive up tomorrow, and I will worry all nite if we will make it. Well time
Big Hug to all
Norbert and Greti
