Today was a day off to enjoy Copan. First some coffee and banana muffins at the cafe on the main square. Then finding a bank to get a few more lempiras. Changed enough at the border for a day or two, but I needed a few more.

Next was to find a motorcycle shop to buy a turn signal (pide vias). Unfortunately, Lico broke off one of my nice LED ones helping me get my bike out of his patio. He very sheepishly told me sorry. What are you going to do? I am sure it would not be a problem in Honduras and most of Central America, but I don't need to give a cop any extra excuses.

In that vein, I ended up buying two to not draw attention to the one. Now I have a spare LED. They were only $9.00 for the pair. They actually look more stock.

After that repair was finished, it was time to visit the ruins. For $1.00 (L20) a tuk-tuk gave me a ride. It was $15 (L300) to get in. Not only do they have Mayan ruins, but macaws. They were very pretty.

One in the tree looking towards the ruins.
