A Rest Day In Sibari May 24
I am woken up by the sound of rain on my tent at about 6:30 Am. I lay there dozing until about 7:30 and the rain had stopped so I got up and went to the showers. They were good and hot. I washed yesterdays cycling kit in the sink.
The camp we are in is a beautiful resort on the coast. There is a very nice beach, a very nice pool with nobody in it, good laundry facilities and hot showers. However there is no internet, and we are along way from any thing. There is a shopping mall about 2 kms from the camp where I got some food for my dinner.
At this point it looks like we are going to be short three riders. There was a very large Dutch fellow who tore a leg muscle and he and his friend left. Then John one of the Auzzies crashed on day 4 and has a dislocated shoulder. He has just gotten back from the hospital and they told him that he had stay off his bike for 40 days so he is headed home. It is always to sad to see riders not complete the tour.
It looks like it is time to have an afternoon nap.
