El Salvador – nos gusta!

We got up early on November 16th to prepare for our 6th border crossing from Guatemala to El Salvador. We dove into the lavish breakfast buffet at the hotel and did some bike maintenance. The previous evening I discovered that the screw that holds my air filter had come loose and the entire air intake was black with dirt! Not good …
