Hello my dearest friends! I am alive and kick-starting thanks to the God of the Roads!

While the preparing to the Tour I visited a lot of embassies including the Guatemalan one. Speaking frank I had just a phone call to Guatemala representative, Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua. This guy told me not to go through that countries because of vast poverty that makes kill for dollar. I think he has never been there and he doesn’t know that the poorer is the people the more responsive are men.

Guatemala has met me with a money changer man with a pack of cash in hands.  The place I put a first step on Guatemala land had no customs office to issue a temporary admission for my bike. I obtained an arrival stamp in my passport and went to Belize border to achieve a temporary admission (on an illegally brought motorcycle). Of course, it was not a crime – just the breach of the procedure, and this journey had a lucky outcome, but it there was a risk.

The first thing I saw was great amount of motorcycles – especially 250cc. Guatemala is a very poor country, however in a village with 1 000 men population there is a plenty of motorcyclists on Japanese, one can have no problem buying liquids and tires. By the way I have changed my front tire for ‘Metzeller Sahara 3’. The price for one made in Brazil in 2010 is 400 grivnas ($50).

This page of my diary has not too much photographs, but there are some video records.

The most vivid impression was a night in jungle with an accompaniment of the roar of the apes. It was weird and terrific experience. Nice test for those who thinks to have hard verves!

As usual. I share photos and videos with you. In this tie I might be crossing Honduras border, Let’s see, is it a proper country named Honduras?! )))

Here I met a tourist from Seattle. He was not an average layperson – he came to Central America. For the majority of the US citizens it is like a jump from Empire State building to a pool.
