Cool pics by the lake!

That looks like a beautiful lake. And the weather ... how warm is it getting on you down there? Doesn't look like it's too hot or humid?

Appreciating being able to do this adventure vicariously through you two. I'm planning on being down there in a couple years.

Its about 25-26 degrees Celsius in the day and maybe 16 at night. Not humid at all. The beach at Monterrico is 35 plus and humid. Next post will be our adventure into the Guatemalan highlands.

Cheers Sara

GuateRider & GuateRider Girl

Dear Julio and Luisa

We really appreciate how welcome you made us feel in your home! We are very glad we did not leave in January when we planned. Your advice to stay and see more of your beautiful Guatemala was golden.

We enjoyed so much your company and fun sense of humor!!!! And the food of course.

I will get a post done soon with pictures of the trip to Nebaj and beyond. We have been without internet for a few days traveling along your suggested route in El Salvador.



Miss you guys!!

Sara & Daniel

Headed to the border El Salvador

Setting out from Antigua at 11 am Daniel, Orvar, and I rode thru the capital towards Cuilapa and south to the border town of Pedro de Alvarado.

On the way we were stopped waiting almost an hour at a construction zone. We met a nice couple Shimon and Veronica from San Salvador there and we stopped down the road with them for lunch.

We had hot water and aircon, which was essential in this heat. There was a very nice courtyard to park the bikes too.

This is the line up of trucks at the border day and night. Luckily bikes just ride to the front.
