    Lekker trip you have planned here. I have done 4 month long rides in South Africa and met Jupiter in PE. I live in New Orleans, so when you come to the USA, please drop me a line if you want to experience one of its most unique cities. Cheers. Happy riding

    Thanks Henrik, not passing by or close to New Orleans but I will bear your invitation in mind for when I find myself there in the future. R

    Hello boys! Looking great. Travel safe, and Enrico, look after Rui please!

  20. Enrico

    January 17, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    @ Eton Rui is doing all the looking after here. It is amazing to watch him constantly tickling the iPhone, the GPS and finding his way through foreign territory on the ‘wrong’ side of the road and end up at a great place to stay.

    What better way to spend a 60th….. I don’t think that this can be surpassed. Would have loved to have Z├Ę and my Mom around but being here with Rui and doing what I enjoy most surely is the ultimate present.
    A big thanks to everybody for all the birthday wishes I received and the prize must surely go to the ‘Nobre Warren’. In perfect German; I was impressed and deeply touched. Love to you all.

    There’s a great place to stay just outside Antigua up in the Hills. Earth Lodge. Fantastic views over Antigua and run by a good bunch of USA Gringos. The food is fantastic too.
    Safe travels…

    Rui, it was a great treat for Margaret and me to share our cruise with you and Jacqui. It is rare in our travels to meet a couple, both of whom we admire and feel a great simpatico with. We greatly hope our paths will cross again. Thanks for lunch today. We hope the rest of your journey in North America is full of great adventures. (I read the C to C portion of your blog today and loved it.)
