... second in command guide together with Aurelius. Nothing surprises me in South America anymore. He cycles ahead and leads the group. Aurelius does not cycle, he stays in the bus and follows the last cyclist. Anyway our adrenaline levels immediately rise up.

We waited with three other groups under a small shelter. I still wasn't feeling any better. I still had the most putrid burps, was cold, wet and now had to have a history lesson in the rain for 1.5 hours.
