    It is way too late for me to be up, but I have the restless mind of a traveler about to embark on their next journey. We leave early tomorrow morning for a two week trip to Guatemala and Honduras.

    ... a fort around it, we took a room and got some drinks. in the afternoon we hit the beach and hit the waves whilst the sun set, the beauty of this place really was hidden behind the unwelcoming dusty road. As we got to know people in the hostel and saw people in the village, this place really reminded me of the town of cats.
