An easy, shorter ride today. Ojo de Agua is small cross roads with a junction on road from Tegucigalpa to Danli. There is a large Puma gasoline station and convenience store, a comedors, a motorcycle shop and our hotel. Still quiet at 6am when I visited the gas station to buy some juice.
We cycled separately today as I preferred to get some riding in earlier and spend some of the short day in Danli.
The road was both narrower and rougher today than yesterday. However, traffic still light enough to manage.
One sometimes gets a sense of a comedor based on how many trucks are parked out front. This one at 15km certainly had its share. After this some shorter steep hills to climb over.
Had some nice views on the way up.
At top was a small village with this church.
An example of the local buses that are frequent on the roads here. Not as noisy or loud as the chicken buses in Guatemala.
These guys were interested in watching the guy with the bike.
A few kilometers down the road, met these cyclists with several bikes in back of their pickup.
Found it interesting to see this sign with English words describing a Mexican restaurant in Honduras.
I saw multiple trucks and buses today with these banners and flags. Also seem to have posters for one of the political candidates.
Without too much trouble, found my way to our designated hotel rendezvous by about 12:30pm. Had a leisurely lunch and otherwise relaxed in the room. David came in a few hours later.
Plan is to cross into Nicaragua tomorrow.
