Now, we’re finally in Santa Rosa de Copán. We checked into a budget hostel, Hotel Rosalia, which has to be one of the worst budget spots I’ve ever stayed in. Despite being 300 Lempiras (expensive by Honduran budget hotel standards), the $18 didn’t even get us seats on our toilets! We also had bumpy, thin mattresses and a dingy shared bathroom. Good thing we’re moving on tomorrow! As of yet, I haven’t spent more than a single night in any city or more than two nights in any country! Ah, the life of a budget traveler!
Luckily, we were able to save money on dinner. Street food grilled right in front of us hit the spot:
Santa Rosa de Copán is built on a slope about 3,600 feet high up in the mountains. While Francesco wanders the city tomorrow morning before we catch a bus the the coast (the beach!) I’m going to torture myself with as many hill runs (staggers?) as I can handle.
