We usually finished cycling before noon, to beat the heat...got alot of sunny days. So we were usually at the local swimming hole in the afternoons. Very light traffic. Got down to 260 masl at Puerto el Carmen and took a boat over to Puerto Ospina in Colombia...no cars or airport...great little place!
...and Ramon never missed his mommy....
Next on the horizon is a tandem with Ramon as the stoker...with the tag a long connected to it with Carla bringing up the rear.
