we arrived in San Pedro Sula late at night, locals told us it would be safer to stay in the hotel when it is dark! They did not have to tell me that twice! So unfortuately no pictures!!

On the way we had met a guy on the bus who was a business man and spoke good english - got a lot of good info from him.- actually he reconfirmed the information not to go out after dark - sounds scary but its seems one of the initiation ceremonies for the gangs is to shoot some one - hence the infiormation not to go out - so this is not just some kind of story to scare the tourists!

Next morning we were leaving early so had no time to look around as we had a plane to catch to Roatan. On the way to the airport we noticed someone holding a paper of some riots ... wonder where that was ... ohhh hooo Tegucigalpa ! So thats what was going on - nice pictures with people covered in blood! Arriving at the airport we had to decided what company we fly with to Roatan - we didnt know who to fly wtih - suddenly a guy appears and asks where we want to fly too - Roatan - great come over to the counter we are leaving in 30 mins - this was more like a market place - people selling tickets - not really the same style as in the west!

Got the tickets - Karina Deutsch - ok - so they couldnt read our surnames - funny - the ticket is a hand written slip of paper - really very funny - never flown like this!

The plane is very modern - NOT! Not a modern airplane - the pilot leaves the window open to get some air! We fly low over the rain forest - oil coming from one engine - dont worry we are told! No space - no aircon - flying low over jungle - dont look down and dont think of anything bad! Stopped over as a transit stop in La Ceiba - got a boarding pass .

flight tix - our name is not Deutsch(= German)Flight to Roatan via La Ceiba! No a/c, no space (felt like a sardine!) and anyhow!
.... hmmm more like a ticket wrapped in foil! Just said boarding pass - no flight number or passenger name - everyone has a different colour pass - must be different flights!
