Ends of the Earth Expedition, March 23-24, DAY 41-42

 

Spent the last few days in route to Panama City. A few highlights: 

 

Stayed in Las Lejas on what will be our last beach camp. Water was extremely warm and had sting rays in it. There was a gorgeous sunset (unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me). Felt like the beaches of Central America were bidding us farewell. 

 

We were told about a German place for dinner down the road from where we were staying. We all piled in the Earthroamer and drove down the road looking for the German place. Came upon a restaurant where it was supposed to be, but it wasn’t a German place. In fact, it looked under construction. We pulled over to ask a pedestrian (who just happened to be the owner) and it turned out it was not a German restaurant but OWNED by Germans. We all had a good laugh about that. Anyway, Scott and I both had very good spaghetti bolognese. 

 

Spent the next day driving and that evening we stayed at a place owned by a couple who were fond of birds and had them in cages all over the campground. They had toucans, macaws, parakeets, etc. I was told the birds in the one cage talked. So I go over to the cage and begin talking to the bird trying to get it to talk back. “Hi birdy. Can you say hi? Hi pretty bird. Hello. Hi, can you talk? Hello. Hello. Hello? Do you talk, stupid bird?” I think I saw the bird roll his eyes as he said (and I kid you not), “Hola, como estas?”  Ahhh, yeah. We’re in a spanish speaking country. The bird speaks spanish. Yeah…who’s looking stupid now. 

 

I thought I’d share some “creative wiring” we’ve seen on our journey. These pictures were taken from Mexico to Panama:
