I'll open it up for you

The Photo-Gallery with the pictures of Nicaragua. Just follow the link HERE. Hope you'll enjoy it.

I am currently in Leon, Nicaragua. Border crossing from Honduras was easy and quick, a very hectical border though. I'll write  more about it soon for those beeing on the move in Central America.


Nursing your hunger for pictures.

Die Hard - A New Photo Gallery

If you like long lasting, hard to die things you are probably driving a Toyota. Check out the new, steadily growing, photo gallery with some really beaten up but still going strong Toyotas on the roads of the Americas.

Whaterever car you drive, have fun. If you want to see my Toyota photo gallery however, it's best to click HERE.

Still going strong, a daily driver in Honduras

Should you be intersted to see how out of a regular Toyota Land Cruiser grew my blue truck and what modifications it contains, you might want to visit the specific gallery by clicking HERE.

Wild Things

Check out the new Photo Gallery: Wild Things.

More pictures will be continously added.

Border Crossing, Beer and Ruins - Copan Ruinas

Shortly after having passed the Border from Guatemala to Honduras, I have reached Copan Ruinas. By the way, for those of you on the move on the Panamericana, one of the more time consuming, though fairly easy and almost straight forward border crossings so far; Ask for a receipt if the official on the Guate side is asking for money, I got my money back, "since the bank was closed to write a receipt", beside that, everyone has been very friendly and helpful, especially on the Honduran side while getting the paperwork for the car done, the officer not only just offered me some of his fruits that he brought for himself for lunch, but also made copies for free. And recommended to always hold on to the originals when checked by the police. Never stop for a "police officer" that does not wear uniform... and a couple of more tips and tricks and recommendations that I got from the friendly and professional gentleman, who was doing the paperwork for the temporary import of the the blue truck.

Copan Ruinas is a cool little town, just walking distance off the archelogical site with the same name. Should you like beer, which I admittedly do, do NOT miss  Sol de Copan: The Restaurant of the German expat Thomas and his Honduran wife Elsa. Fantastic fresh German beer brewed by Thomas in his microbrewery right there in town. Schweinsbraten, Spätzle und Kartoffelsalat was a well appreciated change from the typical, tasty though, Central American Cuisine.

Read more about the Mayan Culture here. More about the history of the ruinas here. Some about the town here. Most important, some about Thomas' Beer here. And if you would like to get coordinates for a reasonable place to camp, either near the ruinas or a little off where you can also dip your rear end into a fresh pool or slide down some water slides apart of camping, leave me a comment below and I supply GPS coordinates accordingly.

Should you just wanna see a couple of pictures, figure out wether or not Freddy Mercury was Mayan or learn that size really might matter (Freddy would have agreed), or rather why "little ones" already in the Mayan civilization might have been the wild ones, just scroll down. More pictures will soon be assembled in a specific Photo Gallery to Honduras.

Don't look at me funny!

Blowing it off


More Mayas?

I know, he might look a little like it was Freddy Mercury, but it was long before.

Size matters: Poor guy!

Nevertheless - or maybe because of it - a wild one!

Much more civilized today: The city is getting prepared for Easter. 

More road warriors

Check soon again on this blog, I am currently up-dating the road warrior photo gallery, a lot of interesting vehicles that roll over the streets of Central America.

New Photo Gallery: Guatemala

Scary faces

Check again soon to see where this fellow's home is.

Baby you can drive my car

Asked a girl what she wanted to be
She said baby, can't you see
I wanna be famous, a star on screen
But you can do somthing in between

Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

I told that girl that my prospects were good
she said baby, it's understood
Working for peanuts is all very fine
But I can show you a better time

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

I told that girl I can start right away
When she said listen babe I got something to say
I got no car and it's breaking my heart
But I've found a driver and that's a start

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah

4 wheels vs. many feet

And all of them managed to survive. Due to the lack of internet connections it has gotten a little quiet on my blog, which will all change in the coming days. By now I have crossed the border from Honduras to Nicaragua, wandered around in the misty and beautiful and unfortunately dramatically rapidly shrinking forests and have tonight reached the colonial city and former capital Leon.

Stay tuned, more to come soon.
