A quiet day off the bike in the small border town of San Gabriel in Ecuador. Time to rest the legs and get over a dodgy stomach!
San Gabriel in Ecuador
Blog post written June 2010
After the mad rush and constant cycling to make the border the day before, I decided to take the day off today in order to rest the legs and prepare for the next section to Quito.Probably a good job that I did, as my stomach was bad all morning – There is obviously a very good reason why some 2 course meals cost only one dollar fifty!
Breakfast Senior Briggs
I got a knock on my door at half nine telling me about breakfast. The problem was, that my boxer shorts were still drying from two days ago which meant that I wouldn't be wearing any kegs.
Going commando isn't normally a problem for me. In fact its quite liberating. Just that under the circumstances, I would have preferred the additional safety net if you get my meaning!
I bought some more medicine, and so hopefully will be able to hit the road tomorrow. After that it was just a quiet day at Hostal Gabrielita.
