On Saturday, we went to the festival of poesia (poetry) in Granada. It's an annual event where poetas (poets) from all over the world come to recite their poesia.
We saw several poetas in the mesa de poetas (Poet's Table) that they have every night, including poets from Ireland and the States, as well as Spain and Nicaragua. The sign in the back says, "Welcome, Poets of the World". One of the well-known Nicaraguan poetas, Gioconda Belli, recited her poesia at the mesa de poetas while we were there.
Later we saw a Nicaraguan rock-traditional group called la Cuneta Son Machin in concert in the parque central in Granada (see previous Granada post for more stories on the parque central). The policia (police) made us sit for most of the concert, but for the last three songs (and my favorite song, El Chicle Se Me Pego) the band invited everyone to dance. It got wild with people spraying beer into the crowd and people moshing near the stage (that's me with the ponytail).
More adventures to come..
