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…

45° C in the shade, the sun burned down on us merciless – and since about 300 kilometres we hadn’t really noticed a change in the landscape. We had arrived in Western Australia – hot, dusty, and only very scarcely…
