We have been checking out our property this week. JD and I found two great nica girls to look after and play with our three canadian girls while we drove off on motorbikes.
What a trip. Me on a motorbike! Not your everyday occurrence. As a result JD took soooo many pictures.
-just to document the event and make sure he had a reminder of it
- just in case I never get on a bike again.
After all, I went on twisty curvy roads, had to swerve for cows, pigs, horses, chickens, dogs, people, cars and potholes and before all that started, I had to get myself out of the the crazy city of Managua. Previously to the motorbiking I drove exactly two times in our rented Jeep and can you guess how many times I was pulled over by the police? yup. two. But in my opinion they were for ridiculous reasons. The first was because a taxi stopped in front of me on a green light and appeared not to be going anywhere. I made the choice to go around him. Wrong choice!! You are not allowed to change lanes in an intersection. Due to my limited spanish I failed to ask the police if it was legal to stop at an intersection on a green light. The second was equally as ridiculous. You are not allowed to pass another vehicle just prior to or on a bridge. However, there are no road signs to indicate that a bridge is up ahead. Hmm.
Anyways. I apparently am a better driver on a motorbike.
Our first destination was our property at Playa Miraflores.
