One of my Spanish teachers invited me to a jazz concert at La Casa de Los Tres Mundos, an cultural center in Granada co-founded by Ernesto Cardenal. Interestingly, a Taiwanese jazz group sponsored by the Taiwanese Embassy was performing. Nicaragua, a relatively socialist country, maintains diplomatic ties with Taiwan instead of communist China, like the rest of Central America.

The concert was a good excuse for me to return to Granada, one of Nicaragua’s most tourist-friendly cities. Andrea, a fellow Spanish student, and I went down for the concert and enjoyed doing some sightseeing around town. Highlights included dinner in the town plaza and a stunning sunset from the bell tower of Iglesia La Merced.
