I met the first Pan-American cyclist coming in the opposite direction that I had seen for a long time today. We had a good roadside chat for well over an hour before parting ways again, and as always, I was filled with a new enthusiasm for the road ahead. Perhaps as a consequence of the meeting, I found the days cycling straight forwards, and after a lunchtime stop for a good fish meal, I eventually made Marquelia for just after 14.00. Another cheapy hotel, which was fully tiled, with metal doors, windows and a fan. I used the internet in a little place just opposite which had a good connection at 10 pesos an hour. Visitors to my site are holding steady at about 300 a day… Now, I just need to find a way to boost that to 3000 visitors a day .
