This is a beautiful country
..... very beautiful Honduras
I soon reached the border and easily signed out of Honduras under my own steam, a really helpful customs guy walked me through the paperwork, no cost. These smaller borders really do work well. I rode across into Nicaragua, had the bike steam cleaned and set about getting myself in, easy, and then the bike, a bit more complicated. Nicaragua want you to buy insurance, that was easy. After that the usual paperwork, stamps, copies, which customs guy to see, find the Policeman for his signiture, the bikers who passed me earlier helped and I managed to find my way through. Not once did I think I was getting to grips with this border process, although similar in some ways I now knew there was plenty that changed each time. On the plus side I had completed what I set out to do, two borders in one day, I rode off into Nicaragua and stopped at the first big town I came to, Somoto, where I checked into the local Hotel, met a couple of backpackers from the US of A, had a meal and then found my UK bank had decided to stop me withdrawing money, they had done this in El Salvador and I had rung them to advise, oh joy... I thought 'I bet they're just keeping my money safe' ....and also 'I really love bankers' ...
