Libertad, 4 borders, 12 hours of waiting time, now in Costa Rica.
I had to do some cathing up to do from my mistake earlier. So I got up earlier. Very early, (5.30) and took this picture before heading the road
Lots of Vulcano's in Central America.
The country side is very nice and green. Maybe because it is the rainy season, but I would find out about that later
The people on the back of vehicles are nice here, all waving, while I just want them to hold on with two hands!
Another vulcano, this time in the lake of Nicaragua
The zuiderdam keeps following me, this time I spotted her in Puerto Caldera. So the border crossing are painfull, long and hot. It is amazing to see how slow the process is and how semi corrupt it all still is. But, you have to go with the flow, smile and pay what needs to be payed. I used helpers on most of the borders, they cost a bit, but on all but one, they made the crossing go less slow as it would have if I done it by myself. Now, I am having a couple of days of with Jules in Costa Rica in Jaco, a surf town. So today we took surf lessons and we actually stood up and rode the waves! More later. O, and I found a rear tire here in Jaco, so the beast is getting a new shoe.
