I am in San Jose, Costa Rica having routine work done on motorcycle.  I am staying at the beautiful home of Elieth and Art Smiley, two of the most wonderful people I ever me.  I leave for Panama on Sunday, Monday morning at latest.  I still have not decided how to get the bike past the Darien GAP.  Either have to fly it at great expense or put it on a freighter, which apparently will take about five days.  I will figure something out.
