Well- heading westward, anyway. 400 and something km to Medellin. A bit of a climb, then a descent and a good bit of flat, low lying (hot!) country before up to the slightly milder air of Medellin.

..and so farewell to the Martinez clan of Bucaramanga – who have shown me great kindness after finding me at kilometre 22 on the Cucuta road, and (apart from looking after me..) ensured I saw and appreciated some of Bucaramanga, Florida Blanca, and Giron. My wheels and brake rotors are also rather closer to the shape they should be, thanks to Mario jr. and Sr.
