Honduras

It’s wrong to suppose Honduras to be the bottom of the world. Honduras is hospitable, and pictorial – as well as other countries are.

The only thing made me upset was passing the border. There was a little functionary who thought himself to be a big banana. A very big and significant banana! So significant that formalizing every vehicle took at least an hour. Even my bike despite the having only two wheels.

So, we spent all the day at the customs. It’s great that Dan was near. He is communicative and fun. In Honduras we visited Mayan ruins in Copan and have had a snack in a roadside cafe. However the meal was contaminated and I spent about twelve hours in a sleeping bag. What concerns Dan… I wish he could lie still…))

So was the first acquaintance to Honduras – kind, real and definitely exciting

Next country to cross was Nicaragua. The customs was passed in a twinkle of an eye. The eye was not small – it took two hours.

It’s rather noticeable that Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in Central America. However it doesn’t mean people to be unhappy or lazy. On the contrary – everyone is busy, working and do something to earn for food. However they have no time for idleness or complicating their life but it is so because the population runs a natural economy. Bulls dragging carriages with primitive agricultural tools remind ancient history lesions. But a mew surprise waited for me – in a shape of a rock splinter cut both tire and tube. The loss was so hard damaged items were not subjected to restoration. That’s a pity – the tire had run only one thousand km. The accident took only two seconds but luckily I managed to hold my motorcycle so the Kazakhstan accident did not recur. I guess due to god and angels and Malinka’s love!)

When this text arrives to a website I travel along Costa-Rica, have found and replaced tube and tire. I will spend there some days.

Ulrich from Germany has bought a motorcycle in Honduras and is going to Panama. Three gentlemen comprise a club and three riders must comprise a motorcyclist club! Or at least a nice company to ride with) It may look like an international anecdote – an American, a German guy and a Ukrainian…)))

I forgot to inform you that Ukraine is in a black list country – no one can drive a vehicle registered in Ukraine. How could I manage? Ask our biggest friend:)  He knows all! I mean God. He was the one who helped me. The same as in Korea, they made an exception for me and gave a ten-days permission!

I miss you al… See you in a next record!

See you!
