2023-03-01 From Chinandega to Somotillo (People's wages)

I left this morning at 6:45 am from Chinandega. The temperature is more pleasant in the morning. I passed in front of the San Cristobal volcano.

I have now reached Somotillo, I am 5 km from the border with Honduras.

Tomorrow, I will discover a new country. The currency in Honduras is called the Lempira. The exchange rate resembles the Cordobas, so the prices should resemble those of Nicaragua. Can't wait to see the cost of living in Honduras.

$1 USD = 24.66 HNL

I met Alex when I was at sunset. He is 20 years old, he is a hairdresser and would like to go to work in Canada. People in Nicaragua can work 8 hours for a salary of 200 NIO, or about $8 a day. We could summarize that some workers earn $1/hour.

What is the situation in Honduras?

In Costa Rica, people earn a salary of 1200 CRC every hour, or almost $3/hour.

Here is the situation in the countries of Central America, it is very difficult to earn a living.
