1,000 Words : Doors of Granada

Bar none, my favorite thing about Nicaragua, and Granada specifically, was the vibrant colors I saw everywhere in the city. Sorry America, but we just don't do color the way they do.

As we walked through Granada, I couldn't stop staring at the doors. What we often consider a functional afterthought in the States, Nicaragua makes the centerpiece of the home. They are tall, sometimes ornate, sometimes simple, but almost always in a hue I didn't know existed. Here are some of my favorite doorways I saw walking through the streets of Granada.













A few more posts still to come about our time in Nicaragua! In case you missed it, check out my post about our bicycle adventure with Bicimaximo and consider donating to their cause! Also, a documentary called Second Cycles recently premiered that features the work that Bicimaximo is doing in Granada. I'll post more about it when it's released in the States!
