Breakfast at Wendy's again, (have to spend the money somehow!), and then I hit the road.

It was again a relatively short distance in mind, but with a border crossing of indeterminable time, and the placing of the towns distance wise from each other, it made sense.

The road deteriorated slightly out of Choluteca, but wasn't too bad. The wind was back though, and blowing very strongly in a relentless effort to sap my strength.
