mural update

Im still painting this mural, its taking me way too long because I can only work on it for about 4 hours a week. Well anyway, here the progress I have made so far.

ruins and folklore

On our second visit to Leon we spent a little more time actually visiting the Cathedral where we saw the tomb of world renowned Nicaragua Poet Ruben Dario. We also took a visit to seen the ruins of the old church, which was sponsored by White House Pizza and we went to Folklore museum which had some lovely graffitti on the side of it, but on the inside had beautiful mosaics that told the stories of several different legends of Nicaragua. Probably the most famous legend being the Gigantona who was a giant spanish woman and the small Indio man with the big head. I Love leon mucho.

new Managua graffitti

When I returned to Managua on January 4th, I was psyched to see so much new art in my neighborhood. Really beautiful stuff.
