After relaxing for a couple of days in Playa La Puntilla, in the Costa del Sol, I left to Honduras, but that day I could only get to the small town of Santa Rosa de Lima, where I found a hostel and spent the night there.
I made friendship with the locals and have dinner with them in a local restaurant close to my hostel.
The man who founded that village was the Spanish born Manuel Diaz, in the XVIII century. He had just been in Lima, Peru, and gave that the name of the famous Peruvian saint to his village.
Santa Rosa de Lima was the first saint born in America (in the XVI century). She is very revered, not only in Peru, but in the whole of Hispanic America.
The next day I crossed the border and entered Honduras.
