I have been waved through most road blocks, but from time to time I'm asked to stop. They have wanted to see either my license, my passport, or to look in my top duffel. The police have always been respectful and never looked for a bribe. Our conversations are limited, they don't speak English and I don't speak Spanish...perfect!
Today, I wasn't in a hurry (actually I'm never in a hurry) so I asked to take a picture of my new friend and me.
We were getting along so well, I asked him to sit on my bike for a picture!
Taking a little time to interact with people I meet brightens everyone's day :) Good thing he didn't take off with my bike...I'd have had a tough time catching him in that taxi in the background!
