ok it had been a while but what do you expect when we are riding through Central America?...
Guatemala was beautiful. We spent Pauls Birthday in a village by a huge Lake with Valcanos all around, SanPedro. It was a awesom road getting there. Steep, with switchbacks going through villages. Most people that get there have to come by boat from a town across the lake. Since we have motos we got to take the road less traveled. It was amazing. and I think we were just as surprised by the beauty as all the villages were to see us.
When we decided to leave San Pedro, We heard feom another biker about another road out that was supposed to be nice and a little faster...but robberies were not unheard of. After talking to locals we decided it was just as safe as any other road...Their advice was just so not stop.....Well how about we stop on the side of the road for an hour to fix the flat on My Bike..Do you think that is OK? (stupid Nail #2) that was just the begining of our TIRE DAY. Paul had to get a new rear tire which he finally found a good fit and I ended up having 2 more flats that day...The patches did not hold. all part of the moto adventures! we are lovin it! Guatemala was beautiful.
We crossed into El Salvador. After spending 3.5 hours at the border I got stung by something like a bee in my thigh while riding which maybe the cause of a fever and being bed ridin the next day, it is hard to tell? A couple of days later we rode through beautiful coffee Plantations, Colorful flowers, Jungles and the Cloud forest, literally riding through clouds.
We attempted surfing in EL Sunzal, El Salvador, by far the gentalist waves we have encountered but we mostly did a lot of swimming.
Then we went for the extreme border crossing day...El Salvador to Hondruas to Nicaragua. Each border takes at least 3 hours with copies more copies, paperwork, heat and patience. Getting into Hondruas was the easy part it was the 8 police check points while we were in the country for 4 hours that was the hard part. we got good at them they only got 2 stops from us and only $1.00. not speaking spanish has its perks!!!!
WE are now in Nicaragua and have only had 6 encounters with the police and We still "do not speak any more spanish" one more leaky tube in my rear tube..I think I need a new one that is the mission for tomorrow. We are in Masaya, Nica now. going to check out more volcanos and lakes. it is nice and cool here and we found the most biker friendly hotel here.
Until next time our Amigos.
