Thumbs up Paused in San Jose

Chao,
I am presently hold up in the Hotel Cacts, Bareo Mexico, San Jose, Costa Rico. My adventures from the US to TDF were interupted when my traveling mates opted for a Canoe trip from Miramar Panama to Cartagena. The prospect of such a trip caused my better judgement to kick in. Since I speak no Spanish I decided to return to Costa Rica enter school and proceed when I can speak and understand well enough to proceed on my own.
All that covered, my trusty R100GSPD (War Pony) is in the stable resting for the continuation of our travel. Should you pass my way please contact me and I will introduce you to Mac's.

Hey Pappy, we're just about to enter El Salvador in the next couple of days. By the looks of things we should be passing your way in the next month, so we'll let you know when we're near.

Nope, we´re on a battered Africa Twin, heading South with two other English lads (Mark and Matt both on F650s) and Helge the Norwegian (BMW sidecar combi). We´ll work out our route and give you a call...

Pappy, apologies for not dropping by, but we took a wide berth of San Jose and went to La Fortuna, riding the Northern border crossing into Panama. Hope your trip goes well and maybe catch up some other time?
