“What do we do now?” I asked. “There is no way we can find a hotel this early.”
It was 8:00 in the morning and we had just arrived into Leon for the day. It was sweltering hot, all four of us were drenched in sweat, and we were done for the day. At 8:00 in the morning?
We left Chinandega at 6 and flew. Nice flat road… good cycling conditions… We were smokin’ hot! None of us expected to make it 40 km by 8, but it just happened. But then what?
We asked at one hotel. “No – you can’t check in until 9:00 tonight.” Cripes.
Most of the hotels were still locked up.
In the end, John and Daryl hung out at the plaza guarding the bikes while Davy and I went out in search of a guest house – and we found a lovely little place that would let us check in early.
So now we have the day here in the historic city of Leon and are enjoying the peacefulness of it all. What an unexpècted surprise!
