Today's cycling in Central America included cycling across the border between Costa Rica and Panama. Here's my bike touring blog from the day.
Cycling into Panama
Blog post written: April 15th, 2010
A brief, 14 km 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 McDonald's (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 ?
