    I rode to the village of Moyogalpa today, a 55k roundtrip. Thinking it would be a quick jaunt, I didn't bring my toolkit. Consequently, I broke both a deraillier cable and a chain.
    I took out a chicken on the way home - ran right under my wheel as I was zipping along. When the feathers cleared, it somehow managed to walk away from the collision.

    For the first time in the trip, my legs are sore. Apparently, climbing a volcano uses different muscles from biking.

    Semana Santa, the holy week between Palm Sunday and Easter, begins tomorrow. I think this is the first time I've even been aware that there was a Palm Sunday.

    I catch the boat to San Carlos, near the Costa Rican border, Monday.
