Backpacking since Christmas Day, 1989. Hitchhiking since mid 2010.

Half a year ago I left my recurrent job working in a backpacker hostel to embark on the current trip where I hitchhiked from Singapore to Ulan Bator and now find myself in Kagoshima, Japan.

comment Do long-distances buses run overnight in any country in Central America?
+1 for CR-Panama at least! I wasn't sure if it was due to the roads or it not being safe to be in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night. I've definitely taken overnight buses on bad roads in Mexico many times. Run up against washed out bridges and landslides for instance.

I was positive Tica Bus stopped overnight in the capitals. Or at least in some of the capitals. Like you, I avoid them when I'm in "exploration" or "adventure" mode but sometimes I use them if I want to cover a big distance fast over an area I've already travelled plenty of times.

I had hunted around on the MFR site a bit with no luck. I'll try the CRA one too thanks.

comment What happens if you get malaria?
Yes I agree it is a very serious disease but sometimes you can in fact get caught without a doctor so I think the best answers to this question should cover both, as the travel guides do. But I also think it's beyond the scope of this site and belongs somewhere about health and medicine.
