Antigua has been destroyed twice by earthquakes, one caused a flood after the lake on top of the volcano that overlooks the town crashed down on the town below, there is evidence of work in progress going on to try to restore some of the old buildings. Its tourist city here , and the town is well geared up to getting the last Quetzal (the local currency named after a native bird...the feathered kind!) from the tourists pocket, huge range of cafe's and resturants so eating well isn't a problem, the local supermarket has Johnny Walker on offer at £11 a bottle so all is good really. Some maintenance on the bikes yesterday, mainly a checkover and refill the Scottoilers. Plan is to head further North tomorrow and try to cross into Mexico on Friday which hopefully will be our last border crossing for at least a month.
Ah the hard life on the road!
