La Liberdad, Nicaragua, June 2003: Thought I’d take a short cut through the cemetery to the point ( was warned not to cuz of bandits but did anyway). Got attacked by some junkyard dog. The thing bit my shin and calf, and drew serious blood, then ran away. I was freaked out about disease the rest of the trip cuz I covered the bites in duct tape and kept surfing. Got a cool scar to show.
