Breakfast eggs on toast and pancakes at Bakers and Roasters. Delicious!
Dinner (T-to-B) of green and red curry with chicken.
A truck carrying freshly harvested bananas to be processed.
Forget about having your livestock graze in the fields; the side of the road is so much better!
Police checking the produce trucks for who-knows-what.
Ever wonder where the old school busses from the US go when they are retired? Central America. These busses are used for public transit throughout the region and were our main transportation for the week.
A really nice house on the road from Tela to SPS.
A typical pulperia on the side of the road from Tela back to the airport in San Pedro Sula.
I'm not sure if she was happy because she had pizza and wine for dinner, or if it was because she was at the beach and staying at a hotel with hot water.
We ate some good spicy Italian pizza (the only food with some spice during my entire time in Honduras) at this little place on the boardwalk down from the hotel.
Enjoying the pool with a view at the hotel.
View of the ocean from our hotel balcony in Tela.
View from the porch.
This moment sums up the week so well. No power in the town, a laptop with a dying hard drive, and a glass of red wine.
The view of the dining table, hammock, stream-fed pool and bar.
View from the window of my room - notice one of the many waterfalls up in the hills.
Our guide decided to try his first-ever back-flip off of a smaller rock. It started out looking decent...
Then became apparent it wasn't going to be pretty. Yep. Faceplant.
The other guide went for a jump.
You can see the clouds beginning to roll in. We had rain for the last half hour of the run.
Surveying the scene.
We swam across the current to the left, climbed up the steep back side of the rock in the center, jumped out past the shallow part, floated through the little rapid, and swam back to shore. It was a pretty good workout.
Rock jumping after the rapids. It takes a few seconds to work up the nerve to take a flying leap off the rocks, but it's well worth it!
Notice everyone beginning to cower and grab hold.
Our approach of Zip-Loc.
The Zip-Loc rapid.
View of our put-in on the Rio Cangrejal in Pico Bonito National Park. The water level was about a foot below ideal conditions since the rainy season hadn't started yet.
I woke up to this view from my bed. We were in the cloud forest so there were fluffly clouds around for most of the day.
The first floor bedroom of our lodge overlooking the Pico Bonito National Park near La Ceiba, Honduras. I forgot to get a picture of the penthouse suite.
Flowers in the Parque Kennedy with the Iglesia de la Virgen Milagrosa in the background.
A wide angle shot with our Inca Kola.
Chifa lunch in Lima. Chicken on the left, duck on the right.
A view of Cuzco at night from the moving train returning from Aguas Calientes. You can see the very well lit church in the Plaza de Armas just to the right of center.
A view of the Rio Urubamba from my lunch table at Toto's House.
My lunch at Toto's House in Aguas Calientes. The buffet was expensive and not all that good. The meat on the far left is Alpaca. It was better the night before at dinner.
A view of all the recently arrived tourists from the trains as they head for the busses to Machu Picchu.
The first train of the day arriving at the train station in Aguas Calientes.
