    One of today's many river crossings...

    The thinnest bike lane ever?


    I’m thirsty pretty much all day. I drink and drink, but the sponges in my throat and stomach just keep drying up. It’s a long and hot cycling day, exactly 8 hours of pedalling, that ends beautifully in my tent under a great, Central American starry sky, in the frontyard of two local farmers, Ernesto (deaf-mute) and José (just a quiet man), who let me camp next to their wooden ramshackle house…

    Typical cycling along the Panam Hwy in Panama.

    Me, pre-noon.

    I see lots of beautiful indígenas kids in the small settlements in the minor mountains along the highway today here in the Chiriquí Province of western Panama.

    Me, post-noon (hothothot, i.e.!)

    Tune of the Day: Clark Gable – The Postal Service

    Spiky fella', not sleeping...

    Nice hills in western Panama.

    Free camping with local campesinos near Tolé, Panama.

    On this day..
