Day seventy two, 3-27-13

We woke up early and set out toward Medellin the first half of the ride was fairly uneventful as far as scenery goes. After about 250 miles we started our ascent into the mountains. The roads turned shitty quickly. They got narrow, the middle lines disappeared, and the pavement became bumpy. Not that I am complaining I love this kind of road. It was also very twisty and was wet for a portion. My front tire is now showing its steel belts. It is BALD! Iíve been meaning to take care of it but Iím too busy having fun. Well now it is a problem. It slips out at the slightest hint of moisture. So I had to got (a little) slower. We arrived in Medellin just before dark. It was a full 10 hour ride today. We then paid a taxi to follow him to the waypoint hostel. We have five nights to kill before Robert gets here to visit us for a week.
