Saturday morning I rode my Litespeed for the first time since August. What a blast! That bike still amazes me. Everytime I get on it, it amazes me how silky smooth it really is. The Merlin is harsh and tight in comparision.
After the bike ride and lunch, Tania and I drove to Anaco to take her sister and infant niece back. Things went pretty good. For the most part, I ended up hunkered down in the air conditioned bedroom watching pirate DVDs. That said, things are getting worse in Anaco economic-wise and crime-wise.
On our way back home, we decided to take a different route. We returned via Araqua de Barcelona where we had lunch, then drove on a questionable "highway" that was potholed and dirt for a 6 km section. After that it smoothed out okay. It was a scenic drive, but I was tired when we got back.
