Lima Survivor

The hostel we stay at turns out to be a gathering place for overlanders. We meet a biker from Canada and one from Colombia. There is another Canadian with a 4×4 and we have a good time exchanging stories and experiences. We explore the neighborhood for a while...
Nicaragua, not just about the cost

Nicaragua, not just about the cost

This is Mike…We are getting some feedback on the dental post with some believing we came down here because it is cheaper than the states. Though affordable healthcare and a cheaper cost of living are benefits, we did not come here just for that. In fact, we...
