    05.2009 Honduras, Guatemala & Belize



    What a ripoff border country Honduras is!

    They asked some over 40USD to enter the country with the bike.

    This done, we headed into the country that actually looked quite nice with all those pine trees on the mountaneous landscape:

    Wild-camped in some roadside place.



    And rode to Tegucicalpa - the capital of Honduras:

    Cowboy at Yojoa lake.




    Lake Yojoa, Honduras.








    Vultures.




    Honduras' Carribean coast.



    And then came Guatemala...



    Panorama from our floating hotel - and the longest bridge in Central-America above (click to enlarge panorama).




    View from the bridge.




    Island on the river.



    And of course we couldn't miss Tikal pyramids in Guatemala. I was humbled by them - they look as if some scapce crafts had landed from cosmos:

    Pyramid tips reaching over the Guatemalan jungle (click to enlarge).








    Gran Plaza of Tikal.




    Guatemalan sunset.




    The next morning it was riding in the fog on the way to the country named Belize.

    A kid playing home with her sister. Much more realistic than playing with a Barbie doll!



    A bloke eating.



    Ironing service aside the road - the iron still works on hot coal in Guatemala.



    And Belize - officially English speaking country in the middle of Spanish speaking Central-America.

    And Belize also happens to be a Caribbean paradise - just park your bike aside a beautiful tree surrounded by palm trees and have a cold Belizean beer:















    Belize City rastamon'.






    Caribbean coast of Belize.








    Church in Belize.
