Brian (Four Days in Granada)

Posted by on Jan 28, 2010 in Mexico & Central America, Motorcycle Vagabonding, Nicaragua | Comments Off on Brian (Four Days in Granada)

[January 13-14-15: Nicaragua] [yes, I am going back in time trying to get caught up on the blog] I was hot. I’d ridden through some invisible curtain and the temps soared while the humidity rose. Dang, it’s just plain UNCOMFORTABLE in a full-on riding suit. So I was irritable, my memory wasn’t helping me to find the really cool place Karina and I had found two years ago, and I was just going to leave Granada and go out to the Monkey Hut on Laguna de Apoyo. I stopped and asked the guard at the Western union office how to get to the Laguna, and was headed out of town. Out of the corner of my eye I spotted a hostel that looked like I could enter with the bike. As I backpaddled the bike the wrong way down...

Nicaragua (II)

Tuesday January 12th [Well, I just spent an hour on this post and realized I am repeating myself…I will leave it because it represents a LOT of work!] Luckily this border crossing into Nicaragua was pretty straightforward. I got pestered by the “helpers” at the gas station before the border, and they continued to follow me to the border. A couple of kids sitting next to where I parked my bike told me they’d “watch” it…and I told them everything was locked up so I didn’t need their help, thanks. The picture is of the Nicaraguan side. Of course there is a picture of Che painted right on the wall at the border crossing. The roads after the border were pretty flat…and the land was agricultural. Yes, folks, these are cows along the Pan American Highway. Then it started...

On the way out of Honduras I had the chance to stay with the lovely Bron family…the Dutch/Belgian family with their 3 active boys gave me some great insights into what it is like to be foreigners in a foreign land…and yet another point of view of Honduras, which I was grateful for. The ride into and out of te capital city of Tegucigalpa was effortless thanks to Willem’s guidance. I crossed the border at Los Manos, and it was pretty painless compared to Honduras. I headed straight to Granada, where I spent 4 days at a new hostel. It was a comfortable enough place, an easy-to-navigate town, the bike was safely parked, any my bike parts were just shipped to Panama (thanks Jim!) and so I was no longer in a hurry to get to Panama City. I...
