    Day 1.040 – A Lost Cause (UK)

    8 km dayride.

    It hasn’t rained in Cartagena since I got here 9 days ago. Full-on sun all day. Temperature is around 29-33º C during the day and doesn’t go lower than 26-27º C at night. Humidity is pretty high (around 75-85% according to the world-wide-weather), but the constant sea breeze makes it quite comfortable, even around noon. The Danish climate has so much to learn – but honestly, I think it’s a lost cause.

    Running out of sunscreen in February – when my fellow countrymen and -women back home in Denmark are experiencing white-outs and temperatures around 30º C lower than me here in coastal Colombia – is a funny thing.

    Tune of the Day: Hang Me Up to Dry – Cold War Kids

    My mom sent me this photo of their house – my childhood home until the age of 22 – today. Seeing the house, all dressed in white, again was quite emotional (there he goes again, the whimper) for me and filled with nostalgia and childhood memories.

    My parent's house (and my childhood ditto) in Middelfart, Denmark.

    I walk into town to do some errands. Sunscreen was one (and, being a real Nazi when it comes to finding the best bargain on the usual price/quality scale, it took me 5-6 shops before the Banana Boat SPF 30 was mine!) checking about the sailing boat to Panama another and slightly more important one. Turns out that 9 out of a maximum 12 people have already signed up for the boat ride scheduled to leave on Tuesday (in 5 days), so I get my passport copy fixed at “home” and cycle back to the hostal in town, pay my deposit to secure my seat on the boat.

    Looks like I’m finally going to Central America!
