Sunday evening the bicycle arrived – everything looking fine, no damages. The emotional roller-coaster is over, so I used the last days to enjoy Lima, surrounded by good friends and eating la rica comida Peruana (y Argentina).

This morning I took the bus to Pisco, and now am sitting in a hostel 25 meters from the ocean. I managed to unpack the bicycle, assemble it and tomorrow will make a short 20-kilometers test ride. Thursday early morning I head to Ica – I am a bit concerned about the heat, as I will cross one of the driest deserts in the world. Also, I just realised that the weight of all my gear increased by at least three kilos, due to some last-minute purchases.
