This border crossing is often used to smuggle Gallo into Belize, and that pisses Barry Bowen the hell off....

Hey,

Was in Northern Guatemala heading for Belize when Dean struck. Needless to say got a bit wet and riding the muddy roads was a pain in the arse given that most off them were under a foot of water. Those Chinese Subs would have been handy.

Saw a lot of devastion as I tried to head North - although I got to the point where I headed back to Guatemala. Most of the roads were unpassable due to debris and trees. I am guessing that they would have cleared the roads by now which is handy given that I am in El Salvador now.

I just spent a few days in Bacalar and a crazy night out in Chetumal. Tons of trees down, no leaves anywhere, not much to look at right now. All structures seemed to have held up really well. The worst mosquitos I have ever been a part of..... all different sizes, some were HUGE!

The place doesn´t look bad at all considering 165mph winds.

Will be crossing into Guatemala on Thursday 6 September and spending a few days in Antigua before heading into El Salvador, I think, although plans are flexible. Any use?
