Friday Postcard: Pulperia

A charming picture of life in Nicaragua by Quinn of Life Out of the Box:

Everyday, while walking down the street to our local pulperia (corner store), we encounter black howler monkey families roaming the trees looking for fruit. We see them in the trees playing together and hear them yelling at every vehicle that roars past them. After seeing all of the wildlife on our walk, we finally get to the pulperia. We love our local pulperia: Pulperia Elizabeth. We buy our rice, beans, eggs, snacks and anything else we need in a pintch if we can’t go all the way out to Granada or Masaya. They also have amazing cooked food at decent prices, which we occasionally get for take out when we don’t feel like cooking.
