At 8:00 this morning, Ricardo and I met the other M14 riders for a group ride to Luis Diego's farm near Siquirrels.That took us over beautiful curvy mountain roads, past many mud slides, towards the Atlantic coast.  This could have been a frantic ride.  The M14 riders can be a crazy bunch.  But surprisingly, the 35 bikes road orderly and safely.

We stopped for brunch mid morning and then this afternoon Luis Diego hosted the whole bunch at a festive barbeque.  It was  a fun!  A day to be a day to remembered.  And the weather?  Right now it is clear. Twice today it came a hard shower but both times I have been under cover.  Other than that, it has been a beautiful day.

Tomorrow Luis Diego, Ricardo and I are riding to Limon, will explore a banana plantation then ride south, along the Atlantic coast to the border with Panama.  Tonight we will spend the night here in Siquires at the Hotel Pacuare, a nice place with a festive restaurant and bar.

I have tried to post photographs of today's festivities.but I cannot due to a weak signal.  I will try again tomorrow.
