Honda Red Riders Off Road took an exhilarating trip down to the coast (Parrita) from San Francisco (around the Los Santos area). I must admit I was nervous as Felix, our leader, was giving us instructions about how to handle the steep inclines and sharp curves, all on gravel! It was, indeed, a challenging route, worse than I had expected. Hahaha! But, I survived without falling! Yay! And had TONS of fun!
We did it! Such a wild ride!
Here is a video clip, once we were past the worst part. It will give you a sense of the beauty! I am the third one in front of the video bike. VIDEO CLIP
It was great to hit pavement and then eventually the flat roads again. I am towards the end, the one who honks, in this Video FLAT ROAD.
The group continued from Parrita up to Acosta, a route I have always wanted to take. But it started to rain, and since I came prepared in case I wanted to stay overnight, I turned around and headed to Esterillos Este Beach. I loved relaxing on the pool and walking on the beach after such an exhilarating day.
The next day, I left the hotel at 4 a.m. and had a mystical ride home. It was tough because much of the road was not painted nor lit. Pitch black. But when the trees cleared, I was awed by the sickle moon and stars! Amazing grace! The moon and the stars inspired me to write this little poem:
She did not fall gracefully
from the waning moon.
She tumbled awkwardly, noisily.
Having lost her balance
somewhere inside his midnight eyes.
Yeah. RIDING IN COSTA RICA: KNOW THE LOVE!
Song. For Storm, again: WILD THING!
