In Granada, streets have horses, wagons, carts and carriages..

Horses and carriages carry tourists on tours of the city and the usual place to match up is in front of the Hotel Alhambra at the Parque Central.

Horses and carts are also working today, hauling sand, lumber, and produce down shaded thoroughfares.

This morning, two Nicaraguan generations, sitting next to one another, turn a corner, the reins waiting to be passed, but not just yet.

There will not be many years before horses will not be allowed on thoroughfares here and one more trace of the nineteenth century will vanish. 

This boy won’t have a horse and a cart in his future, but he will remember this early morning ride with his Dad.
