New exposures: basement, Jurassic and Cretaceous

In Tegucigalpa for a few days. The road ftom Talanga to El Porviner is paved. Very good exposures of basement between El Porviner and Marale. Hondutel Cell towers (everywhere) have put new access to many higher elevaltion places across country. Near Victoria, Yoro there appears to be thick sub Atima (Jurassic) sands and bimodal volcanic sequence. The road to San Francisco de la Paz is pave - nice exposures of K Valle de Angeles Fm fluvial sequence. Between Danli and San Julian, El Paraiso and beyond is fresh exposure of upper marine facies of J Agua Fria marine facies containing rhyolite ash sands.
