100 Strangers #7


Parker from Portland, Oregon was passing through Mazatlán on his way to Panama when I encountered him on the street in front of the English Reading Library. Parker has been travelling for four months and will continue 'til he said, "My money runs out." He has plenty of gear on his bicycle, and he was looking for youth hostel. Hope he makes it all the way to Panama!!

What a handsome guy and creating memories that will last his lifetime.

I used to get forty dollars and jump on a bus and end up out west somewhere. Glad I did. Met some fab people.

I can see you weren't exaggerating about his gear. How on earth can he cycle pulling all that lot...he must be pretty fit.
Good luck, Parker, I hope you make it.

What an adventure. That seems like it would be so much fun.

He has a long way to go, but at least he has a helmet!

PS Thank you for the comment and comparison! Especially since my wife is also called Kate... ;-)
