Or is it Day 3? It's still a blur. It's a great place, and I haven't even seen much of it. Some things I didn't know: a lot of people go around barefooted, a funny sight to see in the supermarket. Also the timezone is ahead of the rest of the world. We're almost finished Sunday before Europe starts it. So everything's that little bit more advanced, as my friend Nick would say. I emt up with the first of the riders who's going to be accompanying me. Maria from Italy. She's nervous about getting a bike and the cycling. The other two arrive in the coming days. I'm really looking forward to the company. Apart from that it's a lot of computer time writing to hosts along the way now.
