resting and cycling to Panama
14.12.2009 - 14.12.2009 32 °C
English owner Liz and her husband local guy Ramiz are nice hosts also rooms are pretty nice. We decided to stay for one day to recover after long ditance we cycled previous day. Arugam bay is fishing village, but also a surfing spot. Surfers seson is from May to September when a place is crowded. Now we were one of few guests beside locals.
We took a bicycle trip to Panama village. It was really hot, but we saw many animals on the road. It is in fact Yala national park area for which you otherwise have to pay. Village is nothing special. We went to the beach and after that 20km back. Teddy had again flat tyre so we had to exchange it. It was strange because it was again rear tyre.
Previous day I have broken my almost new Adidas sun glasses and I was really disapointed. I payed a lot of money for them and they let me down now in situation like this. Also it was impiossible to cycle without the glasses because of the sun and the insects so I had to solve situation somehow. I went to Puttovil to buy silver tape, but ofcouse they didnt have it. On the way back I again had to cick street dog to avoid a bite. We improvised and used elastic instead of plastic parts so I was again able to use my sunglasses.
We cycled 40 km in 32 degrees in 2 hours.
