Ants

I watch these ants every night marching down from an almond tree and cutting through the field, taking home a bit of food. It’s like a two way traffic on a busy interstate highway. First I tried to catch them…

As the majority of overlanders see Honduras as a one day drive through country, there is not much writeup about Honduran cellphone services. Basically the story is repeating itself from Guatemala, it is very easy and fast to get an…

Right after squeezing through the El Salvador – Honduras border we headed towards Tegucigalpa, which we reached in the early afternoon. Going through the capital city lacked any events. Compared to Guatemalan capital seemed that we are in a clean…
