Amanda and I went on a mission trip to Nicaragua a few times when we first got married. It was a eye opening experience and something that I recommend that everyone who can do at least once. We have so many memories and experiences from our 3 trips there and we couldn't possibly hope to share it all in 100 posts let alone one.
On our travel days we would go through many little towns and I was fascinated by them. I took a ton of photos of the towns and some of my fellow group members even joked that I had a picture of every street in Nicaragua (its probably not far from the truth). Below are just some of my favourite street photos from our first trip in 2003.
This street market is set up right by the main highway. It sold a variety of fruit and vegetables among other items.
This is a typical street in one of the larger cities. It was a mixture of businesses and residential houses.
Many of the streets had road works like the one near this auto mechanic.
Many resturants look similar to this one. We ate ate at this one for lunch one day and the food was pretty tasty. I had a chicken schnitzel, beans, rice and some vegetables.
A brightly painted exterior to an appliance store. Sadly we were just driving by or I would have ducked in to see how prices compare to back home.
Some of the smaller settlements would have just a few shops like in this photo.
I always looked forward to the bus rides in Nicaragua as there was always something new to see around the next corner. Every little village and town was just a little bit different and gave me yet another excuse to fill up my memory cards. Have you taken tons of photos of streets when traveling or is it just something that I do?
