I am resting today for two reasons, firstly, I have decided to take the boat across the gulf of El Salvador to the northern tip of Nicaragua instead of running through Honduras, I choose to do this a few days ago primarily for safety reasons, I not one to write off a country without visiting it, and I will be travelling Honduras in a couple months one my run is over, but after getting some extensive feedback for a number of cyclist I have met out on the road (no runners yet) I eventually concluded that it would not be with the risk given the choice.
This was always a concern for me and I was going to sis the situation out once arriving here, the feedback hasn't been great, multiple stories of cyclist being hist at, bottles being thrown at them whilst riding and hotels refusing to have them sleep the night. So no Honduras for now. But very much looking forward to visiting the whole country later in the year. I also need to start eating better, I can't eat right in dangerous towns.
The second reason for my day off, the boat from here to Nica isn't running till tomorrow, oh well, I day of surfing and beach games is on the cards. It's not all bad,
Feeling way better by the way.
