DAY 56, Dec.5, Chiquimula, Temp: 24 to 32C, Elevation 500m (230/9155km)
Tried for the Honduran Border today, but a slow go through Guatemala City and lots of traffic put us in Chiquimula for 4:30ish. With 60km to go and sun down for about 5:45pm we opted to stay at Hotel Hernandez which is really the only good spot in town for $8ea! WiFi, pool and right in the heart of the city. Funny thing is it took a bit of time to find it as the front door is not huge in comparison to the hotel. Check the video.
|Great road to Guatemala City with 2 lanes through|
the mountains. C7R7T4V7/8.
|Guat City looks easy enough, but it|
wasn't. GPS did alright.
|Lunch stop after Guat city at |
Paso Texas on the road side.
Again my spanish fails, but
happy with boiled beef and veg
as the stomach was starting to act
|Rougher road on CA-9, C4R4T6/7V7.|
