Therefore, I went down north heading to the lake and Old Cathedral.
I also reached the lakeshore. I already read that managua is more or less "turning its back" to its lake. It's really true. There's nearly no place where one can actually freely reach the lakeshore, at least where I was. Seems that, here also, the nasty habit of bars and restaurants to "privatize" the shores, as one can see in Italy, sometimes Mexico....is also happening. I'm happy we have laws against this in France, indeed.
Fun to also see a small recreation park...just like Coney Island, in some way..:)
Anyway, I could still reach the lakeshore at some point and take a picture of the Chiltepe Peninsula (guess what on it? A volcano, of course...).
I finally went back up through a different neighbourhood than the one I went down. Often "not so nice" streets, in some poor neighbourhood but, again, I always felt very safe....and people are still saying "bon dia" when you meet them.
GPS trace is here, as usual.
I actually waslate and missed the meeting with Noèl who indeed went running in about the same neighbourhood, as well as Martin Bagge who went running on the road to the "Intermezzo" restaurant I described earlier..:-)
So, no real fancy description today. And, as usual, the full GPS trace is here.
The interesting challenge is to see if I can manage to achieve a run every day..:-). We'll see!
