Across the vally to SanCristobal
Right after breakfast, I spotted this place. I just bet it is better to pay $10 or $ 20us more for a tire early than it is to not have any options later. I was not a lot early. It was a cheap brand I have never heard off and was marked at $1200 ($90us) I wrote $1000 on a piece of paper and smiled. The owner wrote $1100 and I said ok. ($82.50us) The other two tires I have been hauling around ... well, I had them from the trades I had made before I left and I could leave them behind or maybe use them up in Costa Rica. Or I can leave them behind any time I want. Did I say it was windy? These guys are taking wind power seriously. Scott Haskins and I rode together briefly but it looked like rain and it was already a long day for me, so I got a room and he tried to miss the rain. Before leaving I took a quick trip to the 'banos' (an important word that means toilet) and I found a baby in a bucket on the way. Bath day for the child.
