Oct 2, 2010 - Gracias - Honduras

October 1, 2010 I left Copan Ruinas about 8am. No rain. I was reading BJ’s and Taylor’s blog last night and they had a nightmare of a time getting into Honduras. The same problem I just about had. Insurance and registration. Both attached to the SAME paper and the insurance was expired so the biatch thought that the registration had expired as well. They got fucked around at the border for several hours until they ad to pay her $200 in mordida to let them pass and by this time it was dark. They were making their way to the next biggest town...

Mar 23, 2010 - Gracias via Siquatepeque & La Esperanza

Back to same bus "station" as yesterday(in Tegus) and 8:30 am head we for Siguatepeque arr 11:30 then another to La Esperanza where we wait for a bus to fill, finally leave at 2:30 arr in Gracias at 5. The road between La Esp. and Gracias is undergoing an upgrade/widening so half the way is a dust storm every time someone passes or we pass. The mtns are pine covered intermixed w/ bananas and coffee plantings. The soil must be some clay that looks to be ideal for making brick and clay roof tile.

Jul 5, 2005 - Honduras 1st week

Jul 14, 2004 - Gracias and La Campa

Kevin: Ellen, Shelley and I hopped a 2 hour bus for the town of Gracias and arrived at about 11:45. Ellen and I were able to stay at an old coffee plantation turned into Hotel Guancascos (www.guancascos.com) for 240 Lps ($12), and Shelley stayed just up the road at Hotel Fernando. After a phenomenal lunch of chicken nachos at our hotel, we decided to go to the local hot springs. Unfortunately, Ellen was feeling a bit sickly, so we left her to nap in our room while Shelley and I set out. The owner of the hotel had a lot of tourist...
