Innocence lost and found (Drive Day 82 minus 14 years)

Posted on Updated on

0920a CR 2We could turn off the Pan-American and take a detour to San Juan del Sur – sister to the hardscrabble northern outpost. But after talking to the farmers in the streets of Managua yesterday it doesn’t seem right to jump from suffering to surfing, protests to partying. So we cross another frontera and end up at a volcanic research station turned eco-lodge. After the intensity of Nicaragua, Costa Rica’s Hacienda Inocentes is a welcome respite and we camp next to night blooming flowers in the moon shadow of a volcano.
