roasting marshmallows at the full moon hike

Full Moon hike

Slowly we make our way through the bush. Above us is the bright moon, the bright fool moon, but here, under the trees we don’t see a lot. Our torches guide our way. Step by step, we climb higher and higher to the top of the mountain. The path doesn’t look anything like a real path. More some grass being trapped on by the people in front of me and some people who walked here before. Our aim is to get on top of the hill, to enjoy the full moon.

After 45 minutes the bush becomes thinner. We catch a glimpse of the full moon and the stars. Then we ‘dive’ back in the scrubs for the last few hundred meters to the top. Their Julio – our guide on this Full Moon hike from La Mariposa – shows us the lights of San Marcos, Masatepe and Managua, glowing in the dark.

While we play around a little with AcroYoga, Julio lights a fire and brings out the marshmallows. In no time everybody is around the fire, holding their sticks, roasting marshmallows, smiling like little children. Only Louis and Colby are having a little discussion: is it nicer to eat the marshmallows with biscuits around them on the American or without biscuits on the Australian way. I just decide to try both ways.

We spent a little hour around the fire, eating, talking, playing and starring at the moon and the stars. Being out here, in Nicaragua, we’re far away of the ‘light pollution’ of the Netherlands. It makes the night dark and the stars bright and thanks to the darkness, there are stars everywhere.

After an hour we return back, walking down through a tomato field and pineapple, where we stop to eat some really, really sweet pineapples, before the truck picks us up and drives us back to La Mariposa.
