Republica del Salvador. Santa Tecla. [but just for a while].
The very next morning, or whatever it was, due to my jet lag, my mate Antonio Blanco Rodriguez [Tony] woke me up very early. Around 6-7 am. He had a new watercraft he just bought and wanted to try it, in a river called Rio Dulce in
At least it would be very handy for us to access to hidden places with it.
I warned him that was one of the main things to me on the trip.
No tourists, no all-included huge resorts, no .........fuck that!
Antonio Blanco Rodriguez - Tony's plan was to go all the way through 'Lago Izabal' then to 'El Golfete' with the watercraft and face the Atlantic in 'Livingstone' trying to find the best hidden beaches, or other local places where the tourists never goes.

Another funny thing was that coaches and cars has Barça stickers everywhere!
Fruits are excellent in
The mountains in Guatemala were stunning!
