    Day 1.023 – My Dutch Lady (UK)

    0 km etc.

    View from the Universitario metro station, Medellín, Colombia.

    It’s another full-on day in Medellín with hardly 2 minutes of proper rest from early morning till late evening. Evenly split between updating this site, sightseeing and visiting a bike shop that unfortunately didn’t have the required spare parts (Shimano HG93 quality chain being the most vital thing) for my bike (the staff tried to fob me off with some mediocre quality chain not knowing that I accept only the best for my Dutch lady), and thus I have to “wait” until Wednesday. Quotation marks coz I won’t really have any problems filling out the time here in Medellín.

    The finish of another sweet day in Medellín was this view over the southern suburbs…

    Nice evening hues over Medellín, looking south from the San Antonio metro station.

      Medellin is such an interesting and vibrant city. You have done it justice with your photos. When I was there 2 years ago the botanical gardens were under construction and not very interesting.

      Thanks, Marc…

      – and to top it all off: The alcadía pays for the entrance to the Botanical Gardens here at the moment. Great service and a cheap (and very acceptable, IMO) way to attract some of the tourism the city deserves…

      Hej Nicolai

      Kom bare lige til at tænke på dig her den anden dag til spinning, hvor jeg havde en lille indre kamp med mig selv, fordi spinning bare er så sygeligt hårdt. Og så var det jo jeg kom til at tænke på dine mange timer i sadlen, og hvor sygeligt hårdt det til tider også må være. Til gengæld er dine omgivelser nok en anelse mere inspirerende end et spinninglokale! Heldigvis giver spinningen bonus når jeg skal følge med drengene på MTB i skoven 🙂

      Nå men ha’ det godt og medvind på vejen herfra.

      Kære Mette…

      Mange tak for tanken.

      Ja, spinning er sygeligt hårdt – på den dejlige, masochistiske måde! Hvor underligt det end må lyde, så savner jeg af og til den superkoncentrerede stemning i spinning-lokalet – og forsøger ofte selv at genskabe den på verdens landeveje, men det er ikke helt det samme. For at kæmpe mod vind, bjerge udover din egen fysisk, er – som du ved – en ganske anden (og en smule mere eksotisk, ja) sag…

      Kærligst, Nicolai
