Picture of the Day 09.03.2016
I spent the whole day on an unbelievably bad bicycle and haven't seen nearly as much of the island as I wanted to see. Guess I'm never doing that again. Anyways I thought it would be nice to see some of the islands beaches on a bicycle instead of having to rely on public transport and renting a bike is just 6 Dollars for the whole day. Unfortunately the bike was worse than I expected. Almost flat tires, no suspension, the chain got loose a couple of times and of course it had no gears. All of that combined isn't really perfect to travel any longer distances and even the slightest incline feels like a mountain. My initial plan was to visit Bocas del Draco for some snorkeling....but to get there you have to cross some hills which was just impossible on my bike, I gave up after a few km of mostly pushing the bike up-hill. So Playa de Bluff it was. Also a very nice and very long beach and you can take a "road" all the way along the beach. Although the beach is nice, the surf is so strong you can't really go swimming or even think about seeing any marine-life. All in all it was a rather long and exhausting day which didn't give me any of the results I was after. But I'm hoping to cross to one of the other islands tomorrow...that is if my legs are working again.
