July 26 – Project presentations and souvenir shopping in Masaya.
July 27, 2013
The other half of the students, those who did not give their presentations yesterday, presented the findings of their projects this morning. After lunch together we took off for the craft and souvenir markets in the nearby city of Masaya, known as the craft capital of Nicaragua. One of the craft/souvenir markets is part of the city’s main market, shared with stalls for fruits, vegetables, butcher shops, and beauty salons. The other craft market is specifically designed for tourists, in what looks like an old castle, and it is more spacious but also more expensive.
