So, nearly 10pm and still no bags or bike box have appeared. What fun.....
Had a relatively good nights sleep and off to breakfast by the pool at 8am or so. Didn't see anyone who looked like a cyclist, lots of people staying here on holiday though - all in skimpy tops and shorts so I look very strange in long trousers and a relatively heavy weight top.

During practice Vicki got it into the frogs mouth. We played girls ...

In a lot of ways, Luke embodied the party scene I had only just escaped from. But I was very happy to run into him again. It honestly reaffirmed what I came to realize on the walk to the bus stop. After a couple of days in Medellín I thought I understood him, but that was not the case at all. Knowing Luke is a much needed lesson in ...
