Crossing borders…..

El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua

We left the cooler hills of El Salvador and headed for the hot hot coast, where even the sea is warm! However with early starts and afternoons hiding in the shade we were soon crossing the border into Honduras, our border crossing into El Salvador had been very straight forward and we were through in minutes, entering and  leaving Honduras was a bit more chaotic, (mainly due to the lack of any signs of where to go) arriving at 7am we were surprised to see a long queue but it moved fast and we crossed over, paid our fee for Honduras and after a friendly chat with the police about the countries we have visited we were on our way again.

Ahuachapan, El Salvador.

Watching the football! We can always tell when a game is on, anywhere with a TV has a crowd.

Juayua, El Salvador.

We were in Juayua for the weekly food fair, with Iguana, guinea pig and frogs on the menu, we went for this veggie option of riguas con queso, a corn dough cooked in banana leaves and delicious elotes locos (crazy corn), corn on the cob covered in cheese and mustard.

The Salvadorian way of transporting logs, its funny when you are going downhill and a go-kart of logs goes whizzing by!

Sonsonate, El Salvador.

A day of punctures, this was the first of three!

Playa El Zonte, El Salvador.

Playa El Zonte. We had a lovely few days here playing in the waves.

Hot hot days, on the way to Honduras.

Volcano San Miguel, El Salvador.

Our morning alarm call, pretty much everywhere we stay!

Wonderful shade and a sea breeze.

Crossing borders, the road to Honduras.

Times change slowly here, we pass loads of ox and horse draw carriages carrying wood, people and pretty much anything.

Typical home in Honduras, although we only spent two days riding through Honduras, we went past lots of little villages with friendly waves and smiles as we cycled by.

Our first day riding in Nicaragua, cycling past a smoking volcano, with great tailwinds, it doesn’t get much better.
