Nina, thanks for the summary, lots of good information there. Were you careful about always drinking bottled water and avoiding ice cubes in drinks? Did you get sick during the trip due to food or water? Any problems getting money from ATM machines? Did Crick and Crock plan from the beginning to join you half way through your trip or did they decide to come down after they saw how much fun you were having? Did you eat street food very often or did you mainly eat in nicer restaurants? Thanks again for the great ride report, it was fun to follow along with your adventure!!
