El Salvador to Nicaragua

An early start for the three hours shuttle to La Union to catch the boat to Nicaragua. The immigration guy entertained us with his observations of different nationalities. Seemed a little interested at our various nationalities: China, Ozzie living in US, Indian living in Canada and kiwi.

The boat trip was amazing, so calm, surrounded by islands and volcanoes, people fishing from boats, a variety of birds; pelicans, terns, frigate birds. At one point able to see El Salvador, Nicaragua and Honduras.

Two and half hours later we pull up to a deserted beach. Feeling like an illegal immigrant until we walked through the scrub to the simple border control and customs.
Then another couple of hours in a four wheel drive through the hottest part of Nicaragua, horses everywhere, people riding, then horse and carts, motor bikes, dogs and people wandering over the road.

Now in leon.
