Puerto Escondido Bound
3 days of pedalling with pilgrims has prepared us for the beach especially as things heat up with our considerable loss of altitude. A great deal of this day is downhill, but it still manages to take most of the day and incorporate an impressive amount of steep cycling. We generally arrive in Puerto Escondido just before sunset, and there is no better way to cool a cyclists weary legs than a long soak in some world class surf. Naturally, world class surf draws world class surfers, and fans of surfing, and, for some pop culture reason, a lot of Italians. This is okay as it introduces some unexpected variety to our regular run of delicious Oaxacan cuisine. We load up on pizza and pasta and spend a few desperately anticipated lazy days at the beach.
