Ferry to the mainland

After insomnia kept me up all night, and with two hours of ferries and seven hours of buses ahead, I paid an extra 99 lempiras ($4.50) for a first-class ticket on the ferry. The thinking was that I could sleep in the reclining seats, but instead I'm drinking black coffee and taking selfies in a seat that doesn't recline.

One of the many cruiseships that's a regular visitor to Roatán, as seen from the ferry. That's a whole lot of energy expended and pollution created so that people can visit the island for only a few hours.
