Day 002* 12 hrs, 20 kms
Next morning I'm up and ready to roll. My mission: explore and parkbench the city, of course. But I also need to find the bus station to get me to Panama--but no rush. Let's live the moment.
The city feels a bit scruffy, but cheerful. Well dressed folks crowd the sidewalks briskly heading to their respective jobs, as shops gradually open up. Here shops don't stay open 12-16 hours a day like in other developing countries. I ...

Then we saw a pet store, sporting goods store, grocery store, arcade, a weird bike track for kids to drive around in foot controlled bumper cars, and some stores we were not familiar with. ...
Another early start with our tour guide and our hostel owner Manfred. This time we had two German boys with us too. After about a 2h drive we stopped for another traditional breakfast of rice and beans and carried on a little further to a shop on the side of the road where we bought bananas. Manfred told us that a small walk down the bridge were crocodiles and bananas make a splash like it was a chicken ...
