The site seems eerily quiet. My imagination always get a little carried away walking around architectural digs such as Leon Viejo. The level of energy that must have gone into building this abandoned city must have been impressive. The quietude today is broken by the song of variety of birds and the crunching of sand and pebbles beneath one's feet. Its history definitely sets the tone for what life was like in early colonial Nicaragua. The stories surrounding the city's proximity to Momtombo are colorful and fanciful (or are they that fanciful?). Taking some time to take in the sight of gently steaming. smoking Momtombo proved very relaxing. I'm not sure what local guide resources might be available; our program guide was quite knowledgeable about both the history of the city and the nearby wildlife.
