A brief, 14 kim ride to the border with Panama, which I reached by 08.00. Getting stamped out of Costa Rica, and then into Panama was a piece of cake, and I was in yet another country, just like that!! These Central American countries are certainly a lot quicker to get through than Mexico !
The road in towards the city of David wasn't particularly challenging, which is how I like it some days. I found The Purple House hostel pretty easily, and booked into a dorm for an initial two nights. The Purple House, is, well, purple. Very purple indeed ! I may need to buy some colour coordinated clothes if I stay too long.
Lunch was McDonalds (get in there!), and I stocked up at the supermarket, which I have to say, is the best one that I have seen in months. Tuna is more reasonably priced, and who thought that corned beef would put such a big smile on my face ?
