    Planetarica local...

    Nothing too much to enlighten the beloved WT-reader about today. Another fairly long day at the office. It’s hot and humid and sweaty and my chin drips like if it’d had a leak.

    Hot 'n humid cycling north of Planetarica, northern Colombia.

    I didn’t manage to withdraw money from the local ATMs in Planetarica this morning (Planetarica obviously meaning Rich Planet, but the place’s not rich enough to hand out some much needed Colombian pesos this morning). Have got only 30.000 pesos (14 USD) left and more than 300 km to Cartagena, so I have to rely on people’s kindness or hope that luck is on my side in Sincelejo later today. Not too worried about it…

    Nice cycling in northern Colombia.

    Before I left Planetarica this morning I had my own private Mr. Wet T-shirt Contest in my hotel room. It’s so offensively hot here in the tropical lowlands and wetting my head and cycle shirt keeps me cool(er) for the first half hour.

    Desperate trees

    Over the last 23 cycling days since Máncora in northern Peru, I’ve clicked 2.400 km, primarily the mountaneous variety. On a roll. Feels good.

    Landscape's getting dryer as I get further north towards the coast. North of Sincelejo, Colombia.

    A rest. Sincelejo, Colombia.

    Sincelejo cathedral.
