    Quite a bit.



    Hmmm. They all had their ups and down. I will say my least favorite was Honduras. What a fucking shithole.

    Going back into Mexico next to see the rest of that. Then into Guatemala, El Salvador (just for a few days probably), Costa Rica, and Panama. Might head back to Utila to do some more dive training as well. We'll see on that one though.

    Rumor has it you might have had a run in with the officials somewhere...

    This you wish you packed? Things you could have left at home? Things you brought that were definitely key (or paid off well)?

    No trip to Central America is complete without a run in with officials.

    Erm...nothing serious. Somebody telling porky pies about me?


    Hmm, good question. I'll come back to that later after some thought.



    True


    Total about 11 weeks. What are we including in the spending? I bought things like plane tickets, bus tickets, entrance and exit fees, and did a shitload of diving.


    I bought a bar of a mexican soap called Zote. Worked wonders on the trip. It literally ran out 2 weeks before I left. Will pick up another bar while I'm here.


    Am currently dying of dysentery, so check back with me in a few weeks.

    Indeed. It does not get the best of reviews. Neither did Tegucialpa, but I was dumb enough to get stranded there for 2 days.

    You did Tikal? Try Antigua for the colonial vibe. Or Panajachel for the lake.

    Neither are really lone wolf territory though.

    I did. I cut through from San Ignacio, Belize (its right near the border). I figured it was easier while I was close by and the woman I was banging was going, so there you go. Stayed in Flores for two nights then crossed back into Belize.

    Samok Champay is the only place that I've heard of that's never gotten a bad review. Antigua, Shela, and San Pedro were also highly rated by other backpackers.

    Everything is lone wolf territory for me. I just meetup with people on busses, or in the hostels.

    You saw the view of the ruins where Lucas shot? That was cool.

    I liked Antigua a lot. Go there for a few days.

    I'm waiting for Nicaragua pics. Word was on the news down here that there was an explosion and yet no lava was visible. What gives?

    Erm, never heard about that. Nothing comes up in a google search either. Certainly not the ones I climed.
