    Day 952 – Chincha -> Chilca (hospedaje)

    Chincha -> Chilca (hospedaje)
    Distance (km) : 138
    Time on bike : 6h 36m
    Brutto time: 08.00 – 17.30
    Avg : 20.9 km/h
    Max.speed: Well, a lot!
    Total (km) : 37.995

    Cycling 130-150 km every day has its price, and often I’m just too knackered to bring out the electronic equipment and get myself updated on the laptop. After dinner I simply fade out, around 8-9PM. Power’s out and sleep is the only thing I can muster really.

    But nothing (no experience, thought, i.e) is wasted here – it all ends up in my hand written diary.

    Hot milk, bread, tamales in Chincha...

    Am looking forward to some anonymous big city days in Lima. Without the bike that – most likely along with the colour of my hair – attracts shit loads of attention everywhere. Especially in the smaller village everyone wants to chat and hear my story. It sounds pretty harmless, I know, but it gives me nothing (apart from irritation) and being treated as if I was made of some bulletproof, inhuman material (and not flesh and blood like anyone around) just isn’t the ideal basis for a proper conversation.

    This is not just 15 minutes of fame. It’s 24 hours a day of annoying, unoriginal questions that ruin my concentration and focus when all I want to do is keep cycling…

    Sorry, mother Earth. We've gotta build a road through here...
