“Shall we take Warren to El Cocuy?” I ask Grant. Warren is one of our friends we met on the San Blas trips and he is staying in the same hostel as us. ”Yes of course, awesome idea.” Quicker than we knew it, three amigos were on the road.
`Archh ... what is that silly boy doing?' The boat is already loaded and people are getting on. Grant and I got two weeks off from work. Grant had been stroked by some bacteria with ADHD, which literally opened all the locks, sometimes even all the together. After a trip to the Panama hospital, a few injections and Christmas alike package full of medication he is fortunately better.
After a burn-out it was time for a change. I quit my job, sold my stuff and bought a one-way ticket to the Dominican Republic. What was supposed to be a 4 month adventure turned into 2,5 years and counting......
