Back on the Bikes Again

At last we’re in Bogota and on the bikes again – yeee haaa. They’re both intact – although both received new head gaskets in our absence (under Warranty thank goodness).

I’m two up for the next 10 days as daughter Ruby rides pillion back down to Quito. Her initiation today in Bogota “touch” traffic was fun although the fumes must have got her as she fell asleep after an hour. But we’re out into the countryside now so it’s how it should be – clean air, cool people in the villages and just life on the road. we were afraid of solid rain for the next 10 days but here we are – Day One and it’s sunshine. Just passed the slums where we are setting up our next project with UNICEF – even on a good day they don’t look the best place to be in the world. Kiwis really have no idea how privileged we are. Photos of the project are here and  an explanation of it is here
