Headed to the border El Salvador

Setting out from Antigua at 11 am Daniel, Orvar, and I rode thru the capital towards Cuilapa and south to the border town of Pedro de Alvarado.

On the way we were stopped waiting almost an hour at a construction zone. We met a nice couple Shimon and Veronica from San Salvador there and we stopped down the road with them for lunch.

Sara made friends with the local police. He really liked her bike and her RCMP mascot wearing the same hat as him.

There is not much to choose from for hotels here, but our choice was 5 star compared to the one next door.

We had hot water and aircon, which was essential in this heat. There was a very nice courtyard to park the bikes too.

This is the line up of trucks at the border day and night. Luckily bikes just ride to the front.
