We left Huehuetenango with the intention of crossing or getting close to the border of El Salvador today. We drove down to highway 2. We drove quite a ways until it was full STOP! “The bridge is out!” – Arnold Schwarzenegger in True Lies.
As we turned around, we saw some heavy clouds brewing up in the distance. It did not take long until it was a full blown thunderstorm. It rained so hard we feared it could take the road out. We seeked shelter and called it a day.
We have asked around for advice about our route to El Salvador now that highway 2 is not an option. There is a detour, but as foreigners we have been advised to get the police to come with us for protection.. This option takes as much time as going back to highway 1, so that is what we will be doing. A change of plan, but what can you do? That’s traveling!
