25 December 2017 – It was a slow day at the hotel and in the town. The noise of the city was less than half of what it was on Christmas Eve. On whim I walked over to the grocery store to see if it was open. It was…..can you imagine that on Christmas Day in a Christian country? I walked over and bought some bread, bottled water and my old reliable Snickers candy bars. I was now good to go.
I finished up on my route planning, picture sending and blog work. I left the air conditioner running all day a low setting. No one at the hotel came and shut it off. I was leaving tomorrow for the border crossing at El Amauntilo, Honduras. I have to get myself psyched up for this because you never know what different situations you may find yourself thrown into. They usually require immediate decisions with very little information.
