An Unplanned Break in the Action

Mike here. After nineteen days of fast and furious (and fun!) action, I had a feeling it was about to catch up to us. A small streak of bad luck has hit us. As Elana mentioned before, our camera died, leaving us a bit sore. As we spent the day with Sue Ann on Roatan, I started to not feel too well. On the boat back and the bus ride to San Pedro Sula, I felt worse and worse. I had no appetite and my stomach was gurgling! We checked into Hostel Tamarindo in San Pedro Sula and I took an unprecedented two hour nap. Feeling a bit better, we headed out to a Honduran version of WalMart. Fortunately, unlike WalMart in the US, this place had an extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff that helped us find a new camera. Although it doesn't have the functionality of the old one, it will do the trick. After we returned to the hostel, I felt weaker and went to bed in the early evening without eating much on the day. I woke up sick in the night and we made the decision to stay another night in San Pedro Sula. Carlos, the manager of the hostel, was infinitely helpful - he left in the early morning to get me some Gatorade and medicine. Luckily, I have been feeling better and better throughout the day and feel prepared to make the ride to La Libertad, El Salvador in the morning after a good night's rest. It'll be a much better day tomorrow!
