Our New Canadian Friend...

We met Mike at the Costa Rican border. Mike has been riding solo from Canada on his Kawasaki KLR650 since mid-December. He lost his license plate on a bumpy road in Nicaragua, and that turned out to be a major problem at the border. Despite Noel's best translation efforts, it seemed hopeless for Mike to get into Costa Rica. Nicaraguan border guides cautioned him not to leave the country until he resolved the problem, but he gambled and tried to
follow us into Costa Rica. He was denied entry. Poor Mike!
