On The Road Again...

LEON, NICARAGUA - It's been a busy few days since I last posted. After being stranded in Utila for nearly two days, due to bad weather, we eventually did make it off the island and back to Tegucigalpa. Just in the nick of time for Willie to catch his flight back to Toronto. Brian and I have all the time in the world to go wherever we want whenever we want and would have been happy in Utila, but with the possibility of missing Wills flight, the pressure was on.

With a brand new passport in hand, Brian and I scooped up our bikes after a two week hiatus and zoomed toward the Nicaraguan border... by bus. Our plan was to get back to the point on the coast that we stopped our trip due to passport issues, before starting up again. This time there was to be no drama at the border, and two long days of cycling was to bring us to to our fabled Leon...

Nicaragua. There´s something inherently sexier about Nicaragua than Honduras. I can´t say what exactly, maybe it´s way it´s pronounced, maybe it´s the legacy of the Sandinista revolution of which there are signs of everywhere, or maybe there's just more to do and see here. Whatever it is, I´m going to figure it out. We plan on seeing some sights, soaking up the sun, and basking in the faded colonial glory of the cheapest (and poorest) country in Central America.

*With Willie gone, and Brian stuck in the stone ages. I really and truly am without means to post photos. I'm flirting with the idea of buying a new camera...

Let's hope you're not too stone-aged to figure out a way to post the hula hoop pix of you doing the thing! You guys sure had the moves out there, in beautiful Utila International Airport... :)
