...where we flew from Liberia to Guatemala City then to Tablones, Guatemala, then took vans and pickups to Copan, Honduras.

Excellent! Another day I don't need to caption every single damn photo!

We flew over this great extinct (hopefully) volcano . No clue where it actually is....

Then we landed in Guatemala City , where all the planes were lined up. And I forgot to check the camera settings, so my two favorite photos are both dark and out of focus.

Then, we flew out to Tablones, Guatemala. Even with a GPS (and, yes, the coordinates) it is hard to find . Eventually, we did find it , and land . We were early enough to watch a few planes land.

Guatemala City! We love you! The flying club set up a fantastic meal for us, out on the deck -- where this was taken from -- think Argentina. Good. Much needed. Plus, they get customs, immigration and flight planning all arranged for us. In, gas, eat, out! See ya!

Honduras decided to close the real Copan strip, so we had to land in Tablones, Guatemala. This must be recent, because the road from here to there was terrible, and we had to use the special airport shuttle. I think it made two trips, for 28 people. You do the math.

Wow! I like this picture! The monstrous Commander, next to the sexy Lancair. Kudos to Bill and Sue for actually fitting in there!
