On the way out of Honduras I had the chance to stay with the lovely Bron family…the Dutch/Belgian family with their 3 active boys gave me some great insights into what it is like to be foreigners in a foreign land…and yet another point of view of Honduras, which I was grateful for. The ride into and out of te capital city of Tegucigalpa was effortless thanks to Willem’s guidance.
I crossed the border at Los Manos, and it was pretty painless compared to Honduras.
I headed straight to Granada, where I spent 4 days at a new hostel. It was a comfortable enough place, an easy-to-navigate town, the bike was safely parked, any my bike parts were just shipped to Panama (thanks Jim!) and so I was no longer in a hurry to get to Panama City.
I ended up spending 4 days in Granada.
Random shots crossing Nicaragua:

Yes, yummy fried bananas and chicken.
Lots of stuff being burnt: the air was thick with smoke
Yup, that’s right, folks, a horse & cart on the Panamerican Highway!
yes, that’s right, folks. A loose horse on the Pan American Highway.
Rolling into Granada, the old hospital.
And once again I manage to roll right into the middle of the market
