Border Crossing

Oh well, normally border crossings are nothing more than a time wasting inconvenience. Until we arrived at the border of Costa Rica and Panama, we didn't know that this time, it would actually turn out to be a little adventure.
The border in Sixaola, Costa Rica, is marked by a river. If you don't have a vehicle, you have to cross the river by walking on a really really old bridge, which was once built for trains, because there is also a railway on it, but they don't use it anymore. As I said, the bridge is very old and it's made of huge wooden boards. Some are missing or rotting or have huge gaps in between. If you have ever travelled as a backpacker, you surely must know how it is when you have your heavy backpack on your back and a rucksack in the front - you don't see your feet and you don't see where you are stepping. So obviously it took us a while to get to the other side of the bridge.
Somehow we are so excited to be back in Panama, because there are so many things we still want to do and see, but on the other side, while walking on the bridge, we felt a little sad too, because getting back to Panama means that our journey is slowly coming to an end.

By the way, on the last picture you can see Sinan making a "Bubbli". Click here and enjoy ;)
