It had been a great day visiting the boiling mud pits in San Jacinto. Our guide had invited us home to his parents house, which was a great experience for me to really have a look and feel on how the Nicaraguans live their daily life. It had been great sitting with the whole family and enjoying their discussions and also listening to their love to cock fight that been a tradition for generations. We left the family and said goodbye; our guide wanted to leave the muddy roads of the village before the heavy rain would arrive. We just managed to left the house when the rain started to fall in buckets.
After 1 km we arrived in the bar of the village, which had been one of the ordinary stops on the tour. The car almost drove in to the bar in order to get us out of it with out us being wet. The rain was pounding down and people from all over the village came running to the bar in order to seek shelter. It was an amazing scenery, everybody was just laughing and the water coming down. We were benched at one of the tables of the round bar; our guide ordered a one litre Toña that we shared. It was a great beer that ended the visit in the village. It had been planned that we should visit a farm for iguanas, but we had no intention of visiting anything more in the rain. We were all already very happy of our experiences of this trip; especially with the visit to the guided family.
