I spent most of the rest of my day re-packing and preparing for the bus trip, which takes 5.5 hours.
Es un pequeno mundo (it's a small world) and I meet two girls that stayed in hostel Bekuo last night on the bus. They are friendly but my spanish is bad and they don't speak any english. As soon as we left the city the rain started again (it rains everyday here during rain season). I can't believe how beautiful the scenery is here, everything is mountains and rainforest. The rain got pretty heavy for a while and lightning struck all around the bus, so close that you could feel it in the floor of the bus. First the bus took me to a coastal city where I transferred to a ferry. The ferry ride was awesome, there were pelicans flying around and the sun was setting, off in the distance you could see huge mountains rising out of the water. The ferry was playing reggaeton and there was a bar on-board. Then I got off the boat and back onto the bus which dropped me off in a small town. They told me that there would be another bus but then two local kids said to come with them. I saw them loading packages from the bus into their car but I didn't really trust them, so I asked if there was a bus coming and they said no, so I just had to jump into their car. They kept swerving around on the dirt road and when they would get near the sides of the roads they would slow down, I was ready to leave everything and run if they pulled over and stopped but they drove me right to my hostel where my friends were waiting for me! (total cost for bus/ferry/bus was 14$ and change).
Here are pictures from my trip!
