January 28 To cross the border was a pleasure. Friendly and helpful people. No paranoia there...
|Guatemala - Honduras border||15 minutes on the highway,||to Copan Ruinas|
|A beautiful little town,||well kept and very green.||Our room.|
January 29 The beautiful but sad ruins of Copan.
|The Mayans built||until there were no trees left.||They did not understand|
|that nature||always||bats last!!|
January 30 Tela, Honduras, a good place to rest, nothing much to do...
|The main street,||the way to the sea,||and the sandy beach|
January 31 Our hotel in Tela looks like
|it was designed||by Escher.|
February 1 Driving to Trujillo
Five hours of plantation after plantation
|finally Trujillo||by the sea.|
February 2 A very quiet day in Trujillo
|Three chickens enjoying||the sunset beside a restaurant||built with wood and rope.|
February 3 Driving to Comoayagua, not for the faint of heart...
|First the animals crossing||very slowly||and some didn't make it...|
|the January floods||made the road look like a lake||and the many land slides|
|frequently turned the road||into mud and the sink holes||often took half the road away.|
February 4 From Comoayagua, Honduras to Leon, Nicaragua
Driving through Tegucigalpa,
|through the border||behind many polluting trucks.|
On the way back to Canada - April 1 to 4
April 1 Comoyagua, Honduras
|Nothing has changed since February 3|
April 2 To Gracias, Honduras
|Through dusty roads||and small towns like||La Esperanza|
April 3 Gracias, Honduras. The view from our room
And I think I have been eating too much fruit...
April 4 Copan, Honduras, see January 29
