So, bike sold, James back in Australia with all the motorbike gear I could stuff into a bag and send with him, and I’m keen to get out of Panama. I’m going to head down to the Darien Gap and see what options exist for crossing into Colombia. Steering clear of the dangerous bits inhabited by Farc, I will try to hike through the jungle around the northern section (Puerto Obaldia) which is meant to be relatively quiet now. Farc issued a statement late last year that they are no longer capturing people for ransom purposes, so that’s a plus.
Wish me luck, see you on the other side!
