Meanwhile... in Antigua

We stayed three days in Antigua meandering its cobbled streets, regaling in local and international delicacies, even had a home cooked meal. Tomorrow we have an early wake up and we head for El Salvador, crossing at the most southern border point at La Hachadura. We had initially planed to cross further North and ride the ruta de las flores, a 40 km stretch that would take us to Juayua, but we got news that one of the main bridges to the border was out of commission due to recent storms.

On the note of storms, it is interesting to note that our last days of riding in the rain was between southern Washington and northern Oregon, not a drop since. We did have a couple of heavy thunderstorms one in Guanajuato, MX and the other in Puebla (with hail), but they happened when we were pleasantly enjoying a local barley beverages.

Sometimes timing is on your side.

Here comes the pics
