Suchitoto may be known for its cobblestone roads but what I really enjoyed was the colors and textures displayed on the buildings. On our first evening in town Francene and I wandered to find a good view of the lake which turned out to be lacking when compared to the view from our balcony. Along the way I took pictures of windows and doors. There is such a playful use of color throughout the city and the texture of the walls and the contrast of the prevalent ironwork was really nice. As we walked we passed children playing, women chatting, old men smoking, and people carrying on with a leisurely evening. Everyone called out greeting to each other and often to us as well. I can see why it is a place popular with locals and visitors, the atmosphere evokes a kind of familiar nostalgia for all who spend even a little time in this quaint city.
