SO.....one thing leads to another....duh......and plans change.

We got on the road after David and just couldn't stop!

We had planned to go to Santa Catalina and Hibiscus Garden, but as we passed the turn off we decided we hadn't gone far enough yet, so on we rode.

We passed through Santiago and then there was stretch of road with no less than 15 Speed Cops with BMW clone Jhailing motorbikes and radar guns. Spread out all along. If you speed south of Santiago you WILL get busted.
We paddled through a couple of resort areas on the Pacific, but best price we got for a room was $80, so we got back on the Pan Am and ventured south.

We stumbled across Hostal El Polvorete. Big sign, lots of lights. $27.00 and $1 beers and inexpensive foods. BAM......we are in before dark....just.

A few scoops, and a big salad and we are off to bed. The music pounds from the bar/restaurant until I don't know when.

Whatever. We sleep.

Ok, so I'll start with this, I scored some suspenders in David. The elastic on my leather pants has gone kaput, the wet, the rain, the humidity
NOW I am well pleased:

This place was fairly nice, but at $88 just to sleep, it was a no no. We are not in the RESORT mode, we are in the ride/eat/sleep/ride mode:
