Parque Central is definitely the center of town. Men, women and children line the benches and walkways to sit in the shade and people watch.
There is a heavy police presence in Tegucigalpa. This old man is a retired police officer, but he still helps control the traffic for this one intersection.
I had to stop for some dunkin donuts, a little taste of home. However they didn´t understand "medium regulaaah".
This photo was taken at the steamy border coming into Honduras.
Tom is an american who owns the Tabacco Road Inn, one of the only hostels in Tegucigalpa. He rides a dirtbike and took me for a ride up to La Tigra national park.
The windy, dirt road up to La Tigra is a beautiful ride. It´s amazing how quickly you can go from dense, city streets to open, pine forest.
I kept the moto inside Tabacco Road at night and it involved a two stair obstacle, always good photo ops.
Tegucigalpa from the La Tigra road. The city is absolutely emormous.
