Costa Rica

Hi Jens,

I'm German too and know Paul from Atenas as well (I was reading your previous posts). I live on the beach in Playa Tamarindo, I have a KTM 640SM.
Let me know when you are close, I might ride with you a while or stop by for a drink and a chad.

Gute Fahrt und vielleicht bis bald

Gruss Jogi

Thumbs up Costa Rica

I am currently in San Jose, Costa Rica and will remain for about 2 months studing Spanish, I will either continue south to Argentina or return north to the US. Please advise of your progress. Should I travel north I would be interested in hooking up with fellow travelers for the trip through Centro America.
My current abode is the Hotel Cacts in San Jose Costa Rica. Should you need a place here I can hook you up with my German friends who know the area very well and can help you find reasonable places to stay.

Pappy, are you also known as B.B.? Do you know Fletcher? I've ridden with Fletcher a few times in the past. I am planning on riding to Tierra del Fuego at the end of December. I'll leave Texas on the 26th going south, and be in Heredia, Costa Rica by New Years Day. I hope to see you along the way.

Ok, I'll try and look you up. I'm not sure how much time I will have, but I would definitely like to visit over a meal. I'm trying to get to the bottom of South America and back in six weeks. My time and money are very limited. I will be posting updates on my website on a very regular basis. There will be one other fellow with me. I'm looking forward to it.
