Corn Island

NICARAGUA | Saturday, 27 Sep 2008 | Views [231]

I took a small plane from Managua to Big Corn. That was definitely a new experience! It wasn't bad actually...of course...I took to sedatives before we left the ground... Big Corn is great. The weather report has been saying rain...but none the past ... Read more >


San Juan Del Sur

NICARAGUA | Saturday, 20 Sep 2008 | Views [245]

This is a nice town...very gringrofied... but I am glad for a hammock...and a guy to drink with. Tomorrow we go to a beach...its supposed to be nice...to drink some more...why not...I am on vacation! I finally have a computer with proper keys...that ... Read more >


Isla Omtempe

NICARAGUA | Friday, 19 Sep 2008 | Views [666]

Yes it is beautiful. Picturesque...photographic...fantasy like. Unfortunately I stayed in a beautiful, beautiful hotel...with very unwelcoming people. It was really a drag...and they had people right where they wanted them...in their pockets. I won't ... Read more >


Children

NICARAGUA | Monday, 15 Sep 2008 | Views [258]

Honduras...my sponsored children...Guatemala...poor Mayan children...Nicaragua...street children. I think the latter is the most painful kind to see...children who have been abandoned...making their way by begging...forming their own groups of children ... Read more >


Granada

NICARAGUA | Sunday, 14 Sep 2008 | Views [203]

So here I am in Nicaragua. Everyone is so nice here...I woke up early as I heard a band. I realized that it was the weekend of Independence day in Central America. I dressed quickly...and showered...oops...I still need to buy toothpaste...of course ... Read more >


San Pedro Sula

HONDURAS | Saturday, 13 Sep 2008 | Views [284]

A boat ride to Puerto Barrios, a mini bus to the border, a first class bus to SPS. Here I am again. No smiles...no love. Why are people here so grim! I can´t be imagining it twice! I checked into a different hotel, but it wasn't much better than the ... Read more >


Rio Dulce and Livingston

GUATEMALA | Friday, 12 Sep 2008 | Views [333]

After a torturous 3.5 hours on a 1st class bus with no air con, not allowed to open windows, and cockroaches hitching a free ride...I got to Rio Dulce. Windy roads and the heat left me a little dizzy. A throng of boatsmen attacked and I was really ... Read more >


Flores

GUATEMALA | Tuesday, 9 Sep 2008 | Views [382]

Ok...6 hours later I arrived in Flores...not the worse for wear. We stopped for a cafeteria lunch...just like in Thailand! We also watched Kung Fu Panda and Star Wars Clones...in Spanish. Once here I hit a wall of heat. From one extreme to another! ... Read more >


Jaibilito

GUATEMALA | Wednesday, 3 Sep 2008 | Views [298]

I went on the boat to a small inlet where there is a hotel carved into the mountain. I was able to stay in a small stone cabin with amazing views of the lake and the mountains and volcanoes beyond. There was a family style dinner...and I was able to ... Read more >


Panajachel

GUATEMALA | Tuesday, 2 Sep 2008 | Views [317]

I took a chicken bus to Pana. It was a lovely 3 hour ride. I arrived at 10 and found a lovely place across town near the beach and in the corn field. I have my first single. I decided it was time to take a break from the hostel scene...though it is ... Read more >


Antigua

GUATEMALA | Monday, 1 Sep 2008 | Views [290]

Antigua is a beautiful city...though a bit of a harrowing drive in a minibus. When we got to the Guatemalan border a French couple forgot their passports?! We waited at the border for them to be driven back to Copan. Luckily it is only 30 minutes away.... Read more >


Copan

HONDURAS | Saturday, 30 Aug 2008 | Views [270]

Here I am in Copan. It is very, very beautiful. It is a cobblestoned town with lovely cafes. There is more english which can be relieving for me...of course that is my own fault...hardly Honduras'! It just feels so much better...cleaner, safer. My ... Read more >


4 days in Honduras

HONDURAS | Friday, 29 Aug 2008 | Views [262]

Honduras has been an interesting place. San Pedro Sula...fairly forgetable. I thought I would never be the traveler who takes taxis and nice buses...and walks out of my hostel with not a thing on m...but my gut told me to do all of the above...and ... Read more >


Limbo

HONDURAS | Sunday, 24 Aug 2008 | Views [300] | Comments [1]

I long time journey has come to the end. I have said all my good byes, and until next times, and good lucks. There have been an entire summer of goodbyes. I have tied every bow, wrapped up every loose end. There is not one thing left undone. And here ... Read more >
