Recovery day, and checking out Copán Ruinas.

Well, I finally got a good night of air conditioned sleep last night. The hotel is nice, and the A/C is certainly up to snuff. I did get a few suspect insect bites in bed, but I was hesitant to tar a nice hotel with any accusations. I set out to see if I would need to bail out of town tomorrow afternoon, or if there is a bus early enough to the San Pedro Sula airport so I can stay another night here. I found out that Hedman Alas bus company is the best company in Honduras, and they have a 5:15am bus direct to SPS, and then I can connect to the airport by 10:30am at the latest. That should give me enough time for my 11:55am flight. Oh joy! I can chill another day in Copán Ruinas.
I decide at this point to make this a 'lazy day'.
I finally find a place with a few people in it that also has an attentive waitress on the job, I order a 'plato typico' with beef. It is tasty, but I have problems finishing it and leave a third of my plate full.
I retire to the hotel and end up napping for a few hours. After waking up I find some more insect bites, and they are certainly suspect. I do some wikipedia checking about my 'bed' with 'bugs' in it, and figure out what is going on. I explain to the front desk and ask to change rooms, and make sure they give me a full fumigation treatment. I hang at the bar with my laptop, chatting with my buddy Henry back in Arizona trying to figure out if I need to change hotels or not. As a world traveller, he is full of good info involving previous incidents. Not wanting to change hotels, I decide to give it another night to see how bad matters are.
I chat with another friend back in the states for a while, do some blogging and then hit the sack about 1am.
Wish me luck!
