The next morning we had an hour or so to walk around Chinendega and take in the sites. It happened to be the Day of the Three Kings, and there was a performance of traditional folk dance that we were able to stumble upon.
The costumes were beautiful in motion and created fantastic patterns as the dancers spun and twirled.
The dance performance ended up being the highlight of our brief walking tour, and after being hounded by street children trying to sell us gum we made our way back to the hotel.

From the hotel we packed up and then made our way to a nearby library for another site visit. There were very few children here and the visit had a much more subdued feeling, drinking juice boxes and speaking with the director. Even with the laid back visit, the heat soon had us all exhausted and ready for an air-conditioned van ride back to Managua for the night.
