Off to a great start

We were off to a good start on December 28 with a surprise free upgrade to biz class on Copa air.   Helped ease the pain of all day travel (a 5 hour layover in Panama).

Originally we thought about going to South America on this year’s long winter trip, but I read that the predicted very strong El NiƱo would bring lots of rain to South America, but very little to Central America.   So we decided to visit some places we’d not been in Central America:  Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua – what we think will be a nice combo of nature, ruins/history, and cool colonial cities.
