A lovely clear blue sky day, with not a cloud in sight. I had a breakfast of two egg rolls, two cheese rolls and a cup of coffee before leaving Tingo Viejo, as I was a little peckish, and then started on the dirt road. Again, it was in great condition, and made for some wonderful cycling, as I made my way up the Utcubamba Valley with the river on my right hand side.
The rough road to Leymebamba. It was in great condition !
Not a lot to report, other than the cycling really was excellent, the weather great, and the scenery magnificent. Peru is certainly proving itself to be a bit of a cycling highlight so far !In Leymebamba, a brief inspection of the hospedejes led me to a 12 sole a night place with shared bathroom with hot water. Quite a nice place, and I plan to stay here either two or three nights as I prepare myself for the road ahead.
At night, i went to a restaurant over the road for a meal, and was pleasantly surprised to find that there was a stout like beer available. Wonderful! Shane, an aussie traveller turned up a little while later, and we had a few beers whilst swapping tales of the road.
