Copan Ruins

M&T in front of a Mayan remnant

Cheeky Macaws!

Our last flat tire (we hope)

Hello folks!

The town of Copan was built about a kilometer away from the ruins of the ancient Mayan city of the same name. Because of all our difficulties with the border crossing etc. the ruins were closed by the time we arrived. Lucky for us, our fearless leader Issac was able to convince them to open early the next day and got a fantastic guide to give us a tour!

The ruins were chalk full of amazing art and sculpture, wild macaws that love posing for pictures, aguti (these really big rodents that look like a cross between a guinea pig and a jack rabbit), and wild turkeys. We climbed a bunch more temples, ogled giant statues of long forgoten kings, and generally had an amazing time!

We got an amazingly cheap and fantastic meal (as is apparently the norm in Hondras) and were able to make it to Roatan Island with only one flat tire on the way!

Boatloads of love from the honeymooners!
