A shorter day of some 65 kms cycling. The landscape here is noticeably greener than over in Baja, with many mango plantations. (Well, I think they were). The cycling was fairly easy, although I encountered my first stone throwing incident of the trip. I must say though, that this is not representative of my experience of the majority of Mexicans, who I find to be good humoured, helpful and patient – especially with my bad Spanish! In Acaponeta, I checked into the Hotel Casa Blanca which is situated on the main square.
Still quite tired from the day before, as well as another 65 kms of cycling, I spent most of the afternoon laying down, rehydrating and eating. Although these hotels at about 7 pounds a night are not breaking the bank, I can’t wait to get back on the coast, where I hope to camp a lot more. Note to self – I really need to find a way of cutting down the weight I am carrying. I’ll have to look into perhaps sending some stuff that I am unlikely to use for a while on ahead of me.
