With only a short day on the cards, there was no need to leave mega early, so a leisurely breakfast, followed by answering a few emails filled the time in nicely to 10.00 when I hit the road. According to my map, it was a distance of 60 km, but I’m not sure how accurate that was, as I totalled only two and a half hours of cycling. The terrain wasn’t too challenging though, so perhaps it was correct.
Cycling into Zamora, my attention was drawn to a huge clock on the hillside which was pretty unique. Finding somewhere to stay was really easy, and I was soon settled in. I have been trying to shake off a cold these last few days, and I hope I can get rid of it overnight. Tomorrows cycling to Loja looks to be extremely demanding, as I need to cycle uphill over 2000 metres in 65 km as I get back up the Andes, and its going to be tough, even if I am 100%.
