  View on Isla de Ometepe
by JenniferG

Our next stop was Isla de Ometepe in the Lago de Nicaragua. The island consists of two volconoes. For us this was a very special place. We climbed one of the volcanoes which was actually horrible because it was raining so much and the breathtaking view which had to be our reward was taken away by all the clouds surrounding the volcano.

The local life was pretty impressive as well. People are really poor here and they know nothing about the luxurious things like hot showers, 3 bedroom apartments. No, they're living with the whole family in a 15 m2 wooden hut. If they're lucky the have a brick house!
