Anyway.... I left the corn Islands and returned to my bike in Rama... but it wouldnt start, the choke wouldnt work, a bit of WD40 and some tinkering later I decided to just jump start it and leave. I wanted to make some distance after a week on the islands. That day I crossed Nicaragua and arrived at the border to Honduras...

...

I could write pages about arriving at that crappy border crossing at 5 in the evening, the rain, the snailspace ineptitude of the noticably drunk customs official, the going back and forth between different offices, the outrageous costs involved for entering with your bike, the general dodgyness, the lights being out cos of the storm but I wont.. I could also write about the fact that I had almost no petrol left and had to syphon some out of a guys car cos there was no way I was staying at the ¨hotel¨ at the border... especially after the guy who ¨helped¨ me navigate the long trail of bureaucracy that sems to be an overall waste of everyones time was not hapy with five dollars I gave him. He wanted 10, but I didnt like him and he was only getting five. the end...

I got my petrol, put on Creedance Clearwater revival and headed out the 45ks to the nearest town, on the way there I saw a HUGE electrical storm in the distant sky, it was amazing. Soon I was in my ten dollar hotel watch movies in english...BLISS!

Today I tinkered some more with the choke and went to the nearest mechanic to borrow a tool, now I understand that they are taking my carbs out and fixin the choke cable ...for free..

..

but, I guess, time will tell if it that is true...
