My body is used to the heat of the desert. At 3500m there is not much desert heat left. My attempt at making lots of kilometres today was foiled by a flat tyre and lack of motivation to cycle into the cold without a destination with a roof over my head known. 94km it is.

I had a welcome surprise cycling into a little village. Paro and Dwayn were there waving. They had seen me from the bus and had got out to see me.

    Hi Mathew,
    The world is small! Paro and Dwayne used to be active in our local (Vancouver) orienteering club, as did we. I’m enjoying your blog as I work on preparation for a family Christmas where family will gather (and eat) here.
    Cheers,
    Margo

    • Hey, cool! Yes, I remember our meeting as you were trying to arrange the boat to Båtsfjord. 🙂
      The world is, indeed, a small place!
      Greetings and merry Christmas from Thailand.
