I am now in Honduras, in the town of Copān. I crossed the border just
before sunset. My cold has been reduced to a nagging cough, so riding
isn't too bad. The roads, however, leave a lot to be desired. It
appears that Guatemala is reconstructing all of its highways. I had
more heavy equipment dodging to do. The roads on the Honduran side are
bad - more mountain biking.
I arrived in Chiquimula last night after taking a bus from Antigua. I
arrived in town with 28 quetzales to my name (about $4). I had to stay
in the bottom of the barrel hotel so that I would have Q15 left for a
hot dog and a drink for dinner. Today is Sunday, so all the banks are
closed. I had to wander all over town trying to find Marcell, the guy
who sells hats and also changes money on Sundays. I eventually found
I am going to the Copān ruins tomorrow, and then I may start biking
again, or I may wait a day. I plan on riding to Teguchigalpa.
