Give me some of your Rice & Beans

Hello, hello.

TheGuysSnRamon

I have taken a few trips these last weeks, but did not post these adventures. I am happy to report that I have two new women rider friends, with whom I hope to have some fun riding adventures. Perhaps we’ll form a small women riders group.

But last week, I did go to the beautiful South Caribbean, and here I share lots of photos and comments, mostly for my own records.

Views from Route 32 to Limón

My thought once again was that the only way to travel to the coasts is on a motorcycle! One can simply ride past all the traffic jams and road-repair car lines. So much fun!

PrimoI had breakfast at a new restaurant in Guapiles and was relieved to see the waiter wearing a mask.

The lush tropical atmosphere, the bohemian feel of the community, the small, boutique businesses, and the colorful ethnic mixes make the South Caribeean one of the most interesting places in Costa Rica.

Puerto

It was odd to be at the beach, but not be able to walk or swim in it, except from 5 to 8 a.m. in the morning.

Howler monkeys on my way to Punta Uva: Video. Some night sounds from my cabin: Video

Detour to BriBri to take care of some business. Reminds me of how the road to Puerto Viejo used to be when I first moved to the area in 1985.

There is a saying that states “Lo mejor de Limón es su gente.” The best of Limón is its people. I did have fun riding around to different parts of the area and seeing friends.

I  enjoyed all the people I encountered, including the gas station attendant!

The sad parts were 1) Seeing my friend’s cabins and restaurant be completely empty (and hearing about his difficulties paying all his bills when he has zero income),

2) Seeing my property where I decided to cut down the Royal Palms and have already cut one:

3) Letting go of a piece of property at the prosecutor’s office because he asked for witnesses, and I know I will not get them due to the criminal who stole it. And, finally, 4) thinking that perhaps the area would suffer terribly if/when Coronavirus hits it. They are not prepared.

Yes. Bitter/sweet. But the food was good and the sights were breathtaking, as always!

Sunset

On the way back, I stopped by Sol y Luna restaurant, my usual stopping place, which is about 10 kilometers from Siquirres. The owner was happy to see me, but stood too close to me without a mask!! Argh! The dangers of eating out! Hahaha!

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
Sanity: Riding a motorcycle over and over again and getting the same result: peace of mind, joy, happiness, and lots of fun!🤣

FEEL THE BEAUTY. KNOW THE LOVE. LIVE THE POWER.
