Nicaragua Cup of Excellence Granada 2006
Page 1  |  Page 2  |  Page 3
okay, now back to granada and one of my many walks around town either before the cupping started in the am, or after we finished. once again, i fall for rustic beauty every time.
vine-entangled trees that looked like they had been pulled down to the ground under all the weight, or been through a flood.
and of course the eye-catching commercial paintings - here, a kiddy playland
and of course, kids love scarey clowns.
more great carts, this one licensed by nike
and this cart, licensed by tony the tiger. maybe the hotdog-coffee combination is a winner that US cafes should look into? anyway, the people of granda have a lot of color and pride ...
proud to be an granadian-american, or at least an america-lovin' cart, in granada, lovin' the USA, selling fruit ices.
proud to be a chicken who loves her eggs so much she lets humans eat them (?)
proud to be a lesbian?
and proud of fine coffee grown in ... vietnam? what the heck is folgers and nescafe doing here?
lovin' the spongebob, but also making him a little scarey-looking at the same time...
speaking of scarey and borderline psychotic spongebob ...
pokeman, well that's just nuts anyway
pokemon number 2, not making any more sense than the first.
how about pooh. pooh like hotdogcoffee?
and spiderman?
note how most of the carts are made from hacked off bicycle forks.
ah, its a beautiful place, and the goofiness and touch of decay make it only better. and praise the lord, there is not one US-franchised fast food restaurant in the whole place. i'll be back, granada, unless olive garden or fridays moves into town, and then you can just count me out.
