I am now back in Costa Rica after five days in Panama. It was a good swing down there. Glad I went. Now I am getting ready to go to Honduras. I got on an archaeology project at Copan. I am going to try to make it there in one clean swoop, so I got a ticket on the Tica Bus that goes to San Pedro Sula. Paid nearly $50 for this ticket, and it takes two days of riding across three countries to get there. So I am going to get the Chinese Tourist tour of Northern Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Southern Honduras. Oh well, I have been to these countries before, and I need to get to get to Copan quickly.
It is set up, a month of archaeology fieldwork at a famous site, and then I am free to wander on. Mira and I found an apartment a block from the Copan Archaeology office for $100 a month. That is $50 each. Not bad, the article that I wrote for Dan at Café Abroad Magazine will be getting me a bed for a month. Thanks Dan!
After Copan I think that we will be traveling through Guatemala, Belize, and Southern Mexico. Going to try to find an ‘on-the-table’ way to go to Cuba. Hey Dan, want a good story? I hear that journalist can go to Cuba and side step the embargo nonsense. All you have to do is fill out a few forms, and away I go!
