A nice early start, with a slight detour back to McDonalds for breakfast to fill myself up on healthy goodness. Which was probably just as well, because todays cycling was a tough one. All uphill to the border with El Salvador, against strong winds, and in ridiculous heat. The border crossing itself was straightforwards, and apparantly, the Guatemala entry visa which was for 90 days is valid also for El Salvador and Honduras.
There was a bit of a lorry queue on both sides of the border – Some of the guys had slung hammocks beneath their trailers to be shaded from the sun!
Thankfully, after another 5 kms of uphill, it was a wonderful downhill pedal free ride into the town of Metapan. They use US dollars in El Salvador, and a hotel room was 8 dollars.
