I arrived in Greece last Wednesday, crossing the border from Bulgaria, leaving lingering winter to enter emerging spring. It is now Monday, our last cycling day. It was also the first day of rain. Helios, Greek God of the Sun, has been pleased with us! We are a group of five.
I arrived in the rain to Bulgaria's capital of Sofia and to be honest, drab was my first impression but not just because of the dreary overcast. The skyline I saw as we skirted the city was of a Soviet influenced gray and I thought of stereotypical communist austerity and uniformity.
It's not often you get one of these in the mail. Looks like this postcard made its way to San Francisco in about 3 1/2 weeks. Thanks, Mom!
When I arrived in Hong Kong on Monday, all I wanted was to go home. But I had only one day in Hong Kong. I have never been one that enjoyed figuring things out in a big city and definitely not a subway system. It is not that complicated but it is just not my thing.
Today was an awesome day and reminded me again of how I love to bike! It was cool in the morning and then began to warm up. We're staying in a nice hotel, all cabins built with bamboo. The floor is made of weaved bamboo, the walls everything.
“This is Burma and it will be quite unlike any land you know about”, wrote Rudyard Kipling in Letters from the East in 1898. Hennie has arrived in Yangon, city of over 5 million, anxious to begin her tour! We think it will be quite unlike any land that Hennie has cycled. We wait for updates!
