Heat battle continuedMarch 10, 2020 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C
As a farewell, Delwin gave us a couple of bags, medals and bocadillo (a sweet made of guayaba which gives you energy). Then we headed to San Alberto. The route was uneventful, mainly flat with one bigger hill to climb. We saw the first real mountains of Colombia and lots of interesting animal road signs.
Again, it was really hot, even though it was overcast all day. This made it really exhausting to cycle. When we arrived in San Alberto, we were happy to find a hotel with airconditioning. We decided to explore the town a little. As we were hungry amd thirsty, we bought fresh cold orange juice from a street vendor, some bred and cake from a bakery and a dinner of soup and meat with rice, pasta, yuka, platano, salad and sugar cane juice (way too sweet for us). The dinner was really tasty and huge and only cost 1.60€. It's actually cheaper than cooking. Finally, we went to a refill station of water gallons to ask if they can also refill our water bottles. They did it and didn't want any money for it as our 6litres are pretty much nothing for them. Nice people all around!Read more
