    A different kind of government!

    Talked to the owner of the resort that I'm based at for a few weeks about the "protection" money He " has" to pay.
    $1,200 USD/month.
    If He doesn't pay the gang said they would start by killing one of his employees then torch the place!I

    It's a common "tax" down here, they just comply with it like we all do with our gobments.

    They see it as no different.

    Was at a local roadside bar today (shack on the side of the road with cold $1 beer) and 3 kids came by on their bicycles to get his monthly "tax"!
    Normal looking kids, no tat's etc, I heard they are also useing young girls to do their collections as they are less conspicuous to the police/army.

    Security guard here now 24/7 since last year's murder, nice shotgun!

    Weekdays, nobody on the Pacific coast beach as far as you can see, but city dwellers come down in a bus and dump truck loads on weekends!

    1 acre ocean front lots go for $90K, who's in?

    From AP.

    "At least 138 people deported to El Salvador from the United States in recent years were subsequently killed, Human Rights Watch says in a report that comes as the Trump administration makes it harder for Central Americans to seek refuge here.

    A majority of the deaths documented by Human Rights Watch in the report Wednesday occurred less than a year after the deportees returned to El Salvador; some were within days. The organization also confirmed at least 70 cases of sexual assault or other violence following their arrival in the country."

    IMG_20200210_155748.jpg

    Brutal but great trip up Volcano de Cachuegua, aka Spirit Mountain as per the natives.

    IMG_20200211_190844_354.jpg

    Mirador at the top looking at the Golfo de Fonseco, Sal, Nic and Honduras all seen.

    IMG_20200211_112510_burst_01.jpg

    In 38C heat and sunny skies took 1 hour to get to the town then 1 hour "way up" on baby head cobblestones. Brutal coming down, lost the front and worn rear a few times but kept it up, so worth it.

    IMG_20200210_162251.jpg

    So roadside shack $1 beers.
    200 XL rocked it, ride red! :rayof

    Twas a dark and stormy night!
    No, wait, that's not right, let's try again...

    The pearly dew on the ice-cold Pilsener bottle shimmered in the heat.
    It was mid February and it still got Africa hot.

    Don't watch the scenery here unless you are stopped!

    IMG_20200212_105104.jpg

    Too many cattle, horses, goats, coatimundi, dogs and Iguanas to keep an eye on.

    IMG_20200212_105358.jpg

    And of course the road, trail and rut conditions.

    "Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
    With stars to fill my dream
    I am a traveler of both time and space
    To be where I have been

    Sit with elders of the gentle race
    This world has seldom seen
    Talk of days for which they sit and wait
    And all will be revealed"

    and then....a bunch of ooooyas and hooooyas, Kashmir by the Zep!

    So days filled with riding, socializing, drinking, eating and leisure, also lusting at this grand world we inhabit.

    IMG_20200213_063956.jpg

    $2.50 breakfast.

    IMG_20200213_081916.jpg

    I stayed in el tunco on the way down to CR 10 years ago, fun on the weekends, pretty quiet otherwise. Dont miss the fried plantains though.
    and it is hot, so hot you cant stand it, and it makes you dumb. Like ride with shorts on dumb. packed up ealry and was heading up that oh so beautiful coastal highway, carving the corners, feeling the shocks compress and spring free on the exit. and then your eyes pin in on something they dont like, two dogs running right across ahead of you, slight correction, should be good, No, second dog reverses course and nothing to be done, bikes got the knee pinned against the luckily smooth asphalt in a slide. Pull the leg out, hop up, dont look down, nothing you want to see here. all I needed was the look on the first local on the scenes face.
    Have fun man, but learn from others or learn the hardway.
    and have a cervesa for all us frozen bastards up north...

    Gracias Phlyn' Phil, I hear you, I do!

    Drank all the Cervesa's so here's a Tequila Sunrise/Sunset!

    Wanna buy a "escort" or a moto, or both?

    IMG_20200214_111038.jpg

    Minus 5C at home so when it's plus 38C here AC is set to 27C and that feels good!

    I get another scooter on Wednesday to show you FF's the new strip club in El Cuco (1whore town) then up to San Miguel for some hot wet Lips! That's right, THE #1 strip club in the world.

    Damned if I can't see any Aztec/Mayan ruins yet, sorry GoodCat

    Inside no bueno, too dark, sorry.

    Most fun was watching at night the crazy motorcycles all lit up merging with the big trucks at a roundabout, noisy!

    Got a 26r of Troika Vodka for $6, Sprite and ice is all you need.

    Honda scooter, I broke the extended lever for the centre stand 1st day so rammed in a 6" piece of rebar and it's functional if there is no tree around.

    Did the 1/4 mile on the beach today flat out at l don't know how many seconds (minutes) but was cool. ie fun, not cool as it was 40C.

    "Sweet dreams are made of this
    Who am I to disagree?
    I travel the world and the seven seas
    Everybody's looking for something

    Some of them want to use you
    Some of them want to get used by you
    Some of them want to abuse you
    Some of them want to be abused"

    Annie Lennox.

    So back on a fracking underpowered small wheel twist and go 150CC Chinese "Honda"

    Love it!

    Near the coast with mountains/volcanos in the background.
    Small 1 lane dirt/rock road to some amazing 4 star hotels on the Pacific.

    IMG_20200225_155407.jpg

    Gringo price for the El Salvador vodka is $6, retail stamped on the bottle is $4.99, it's 30% Alc. Vol.

    IMG_20200220_155707.jpg

    This is the weekend at the beach shot, where did all these people come from?

    Normally can't see anyone for miles but the city folk come down in dump trucks, pickups and buses.

    Another $1 beer joint on the side of a 4 lane divided highway near San Luis Talpa. Under the bridge they sell Cocos and pecans etc, just jam on the brakes when a 2 trailer semi loaded with sugar cane is behind you!? Seen it......

    Saw a family on a motorcycle today, dad driving, mom behind, kid sandwiched in between and a maybe 2 year old girl straddling the triple trees with her butt on the gas tank!
    Yup, only dad had a helmet on.

    IMG_20200227_160300_kindlephoto-135643415.jpg

    Also some local habitation,

    IMG_20200227_155743_kindlephoto-135728859.jpg

    And the cop shop.

    Do turtles have lips or is that just chickens?

    IMG_20200214_084145_kindlephoto-1043932189.jpg

    Notice the $18.50 helmet for sale beside the only ATM within three towns that may or may not be working and if it is may or may not have cash in it, small man with big rifle always hanging out near it!
