Well, I finally made it. I didn't think I was going to, given that I came up
20km short the day before. I decided to take the "Carretera Cuota," which is
a system of pay highways, since it was shorter, had better pavement, and less
climbing. And I had no idea what those signs with the bikes with red slashes
through them meant. I only speak English and Spanish, I don't know sign
Much to my surprise, much of the trip was downhill, and I made it to Oaxaca in
record time. There wasn't any access to water or food along the way, so I had
to suffer for the last couple of hours.
I have to admit that biking 7/7 days with a heavy touring bike over hills is
more work than I expected. I am really looking forward to taking a couple of
days off and relaxing. Where is a good masseuss when you need one?
I have good access to the internet for the next couple of days, so expect some
new stories soon, and if you send me mail, I should be able to reply quickly.
I even found an internet cafe that only charges 10 ps/hour! (US$1/hr.) Sure
beats paying US$1 a minute for my pocketmail.
I'm not sure what the plan is from here; I'll figure that out in the next day
