    October 14, 2013 | By | Reply More

    I finally got around to update the blog while on the road. There is no internet signal in areas between Quebrada de Piedra and Sona. If you’d like to see quicker updates in between posts, follow curiousnomadtravel on Instagram.

    I got an early start to Sona since Luis, the stranger’s house I crashed at, was off to work.

    Here are photos I snapped along the way from Jorones to Sona. Enjoy!

    I arrived and checked into my hotel. Afterwards, I head to the main street to grab lunch. Click video to take a peak at the town of Sona.

    The ride from Jorones to Sona was moderate. Few hills to go up and cruise down on, but manageable. It took me about 4 hours to cycle 37 km.

    This puts me around 300 km to the finish line, crossing the Bridge of the Americas!

    Got sick the next day

    I stayed in Sona an extra night because I got sick. It must have been from the night before when we went pig chasing since I was out in the rain and shivering. Watch the video to see the neighborhood and updates for the day.

    Morning parade through town

    I like to see how a town or city gets going in the morning. People going to work. Kids going to school. Movement. It gives you an idea of the community.

    The morning I left Sona, I was having breakfast at a restaurant. I heard drums beating from afar getting closer. I take a peak out and see this parade. They were promoting healthy hand washing. Click video to watch.
