Day 1663, Palmar – Aguadulce: Morning Swim

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on May - 04 - 2015

Distance: 103.16 km
Ride time: 4:53:41
Average: 21.07 km/h
Max speed: 48.42 km/h
Total: 34550 km

If the first thing you do in the morning is to open the door and go for a swim in the Pacific ocean, how can it not be a great day?

After the morning dip and a home made breakfast with the great people from last night I was full of positive energy as I hit the road. I didn’t have many expectations when I arrived in Panama, but boy I like this place.

The good vibes continued throughout the day. As I was descending from hill a woman was driving behind me for a while. At first I was a little confused until she opened the window and told “I’m protecting you from the trucks, just keep going young man” Gracias! đŸ™‚

This part of central Panama seems to be dry and sparsely populated. The destination today was Aguadulce, an anonymous city where I was riding around looking for a cheap room. Once again a woman rolled down the window and asked if she could help. “Follow me and I will take you to the cheapest hotel in town” she said. The people of Panama are just as friendly as the Colombians, and that tells quite a bit!

I love to be back on the road. Tomorrow there will be more cruising up the Panamerican highway towards Costa Rica.
