Cool2 All in a day's work



Woken up by the call from the “gallo” at the crack of dawn, feed a hungry dog your last smoked chuleta, and twist the throttle. Heading for the volcanoes of Guatemala on your way to the Salvadorian border. Miss your exit and get lost for an hour or so. Lane split a couple miles of lories, and other road monsters to be the first in line at the aduana.

Out of Guatemala in 10 minutes, into Salvador in an hour. Ride another hundred km into the twisty Pacific coast. In and out of tunnels. Find your dwelling in playa Tunco just in time to splash in the waves rincing off the heat and humidity of the day, shoot the sunset, and drink a well deserve local pils.

This was the kind of day it was for Jackie and Valentino on this November 8, 2013.

All in a day’s work.
