11 to 15 May Kms travelled – 13,417
Here I am, and pretty much up to date again with these scribbles. The next blog entry will be a full report of the next stage, as I am now leaving the embargoed zone. I thought the south was impressive, but I have seen some sights in the last few days – and experienced some riding – that is leaving me a little lost for words. Not to worry, I am sure the words will come, and I´ll let you all know in due course how you can get your hands on the published material (if it is felt worthy that is). Suffice to say that I have encountered some of the best riding of my life!
Thought for the day
Over the last few days I have mainly been thinking about my wife, and the fact that I miss her greatly. But I do tend to miss her more some days than others (sorry my love). I have been pondering why that might be. She is constantly in my thoughts, but it seems to me that I miss her more when I am in a place that I know she would love, and miss her less when the area is less pleasing (for the want of a better way of expressing it). I wonder if that is related to me knowing her likes and dislikes and wanting her to be happy? And feeling thank goodness she is not with me here in this place, when things are not so nice? Curious... but I think that explanation might be close to the mark. I know she would love Cusco!
