Locombia Chapter Twentytwo: The Thoughts

What am I doing with my life?! What do I want to do with my life?!

Honda - Guaduas 33 kilometers, elevation gain 1,168 meters

The climb to Guaduas wasn't bad in theory. In practice the legs just didn't want to go.

I have all the time in the world to contemplate life and make meaning of all my problems and issues on this trip. Opportunities to chat with Omar are few as we either ride single file due to traffic or we're simply too tired to talk.

So do I spend time on solving my problems and maybe even touching on some of the philiosphical questions of life? Here is some insight of what has been going on behind the handlebars today:

Humming on a song.

Couting the distance marks on the road: "100... 125... 150... 175... 200... 225... CRAZY DOG, CRAZY DOG, PEDAL DAMMIT!... now, where was I. 350... 375... 400... 425..."

Thinking "it's so hot!"

Thinking " oh, oh, I can hear another truck coming. Please, please don't pass too close!"

Thinking that this isn't so hard.

Thinking that this is the worst most horrible thing in the world.

Wiggling my hands so that I get my feeling back again.

 Wondering how I'm going to get back to Bogotá.

Wondering why I'm still not getting a tan.

Wondering if I should continue reading the Silo trilogy or choose something else.

Wondering if I've been drinking enough water today.

Drinking water.

Thinking we should stop and take a picture here

Thinking "don't look at that road kill!"

Looking at the road kill, thinking "is that part of the brain? Poor... What did it use to be?"

Looking at the scenery, thinking "it's so beautiful! I hope I won't have to climb that mountain though"

Thinking, "no, I really have to climb that!"

And then we entered Guaduas.

We met a fellow cyclists, Canadian Christina. She had problems with the threading on the crank arm, so we took her to Old Javi, who turned out to be young. Have a nice trip, Christina! Remember patience will compensate for lack of language skills.
