It had rained overnight, and was still overcast as I set out in the morning, bringing the overall temperature down by a couple of degrees. Again, the cycling was pretty easy over rolling hills, and I was feeling much better. An hour in, I stopped for breakfast which was just the job, and then ten minutes later, I stopped in at an internet café for a half hour to check up on some emails. At 1000 pesos (50 cents / 33 pence) internet access in Colombia is cheap and fast. The final 10 kms into the city of Caucasia were a little more hilly, but nothing in comparison to the Andes, which now lay just a few days ahead of me. A single room in Hotel Genesis cost me 18,000 pesos for the night, and was within walking distance of a huge Exito supermarket where I stocked up. A reasonably short day of 70 kms, and I have the same in mind for tomorrow.
(I am the only white person in Caucasia – kind of a weird sentence that one!!)
