I finally started getting everything back to normal when I got to Copan. I spent a nice day here visiting the Mayan ruins. This was the first Mayan ruins I have seen so I was really impressed by them and learnt a lot about the Mayan culture and history of the area.
The following day I travelled to Antigua in Guatemala. A bit of a scary journey as I think the driver was trying to break some kind of speed record on the narrow mountain roads with a lot of lorries. Relieved to arrive safely I found a hostel and spent the rest of the day looking round the town. Its a really nice city, lots of impressive colonial buildings, and ruins from the many earthquakes. I enjoyed looking round the cathedral, from the main square it looks in good condition but in actually fact only a very small part of the building is in use, the rest of it is in ruins.
As I had enjoyed the afternoon there I decided to spend the next day, looking round more areas of the city, including some more ruins and churches, the museum and the market.
