Day 49: Go, Team Odyssey!

18.02.09:

Still no word from the Linge Trader. Hugh has gone to Germany now and Lorna and Dino are in work. I’m in the office at DR1 with Ken, TJ, Lu, Lee and Robert – it’s becoming like a proper job. I’m going to get editing Week 5 and 6 videos now, so I don’t think anything more exciting is going to happen today, but if it does, I’ll be sure to let you know.

Sorry it’s taken me so long to update my blog – it’s hard when all the time you are awake, you are trying to get your next means of passage secured. Once I’m back on Terra Firma and I’m sitting on buses for hours on end, they’ll be up here every day. Promise!

OH, HANG ON A MINUTE… WHAT’S THIS?!

I’ve just this moment received an email from the dude in Florida, Mauricio, saying that MY PASSAGE TOMORROW IS SECURED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And…at the exact same moment as that revelation, here’s the delightful Mary Dowrick ringing me on Skype to tell me that MY ONWARD PASSAGE TO COSTA RICA IS SORTED TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

GO TEAM ODYSSEY!!!!!!!

Lorna, Leo, Hugh, Dino, Mandy, John, Mary, Mike, Mum and Dad – take a bow.

I think I might just have made it out of the Caribbean. I’m off for a beer.

    Huurayy. The karaoke crowd from Puerto Plata can’t wait to see your videos from the DR. Especially your song! We are all rooting for you!

    Hey Graham,

    Did you make to Costa Rica yet? I’m from Costa Rica and if you need info on how get busses from San Jose to any where in Central America, let me know and i’ll will point you to the appropiate web sites. You might be pleased to know that there is a bus line that runs from San Jose all the way to Mexico. http://www.ticabus.com/mapa_ing.html That’s probably one of the best transport company in Central America, I hope that it all goes well. If you need anything while in Costa Rica, let me know and i’ll find the information for you.

    Congrats on getting out Graham. Though you’ll only be passing through Halifax to get your feet dirty in Canada, I suggest you come back and do more of the country at a later date. Its quite varied and very interesting.
