Entering El Salvador

After 21 days I have left Guatemala, I originally planned on spending on six days. It was hard to say goodbye to Guatemala. Despite what happened to me out at Lake Atitlan I had a great time. I made so many new friends, met really great people and had some amazing rides. My new friends made all the difference in my stay; it was as if I became part of the family.

I decided to stick to the Pan American highway and cross into El Salvador at San Cristobal. As I approached the border I say so many trucks that I thought I made a bad choice to cross here. I drove past all the trucks and parked right at the gate, nobody seemed to mind. After a few line-ups, filling out some forms and checking the VIN number on the bike three times I was out of Guatemala and into El Salvador. Easy.

The highway into San Salvador was smooth and fast, best of all – no speed bumps. I think I might enjoy riding here.
