Wet roads starting out. Wet roads finishing up. In between a flat day riding under sunny skies.
Had breakfast in the hotel before going back to the main highway. All day was riding on two lane divided highway. It wasn’t limited access, so lots of little places along the way. The road was still wet and occasionally some mud splatters to streak things.
It was an agricultural area with cows as well as corn and sugar cane. Interesting to find these white birds often with cattle.
This was soccer field in small village I passed. A good overview for the day: slightly soggy field. Lots of sugar cane and otherwise flat.
Love potion for sale. Seemed to be multiple places in this village all selling some variation.
By now the sun had come out and was turning out to be a nice day. Interestingly the signs have changed from citing specific genus and species of animals to a very generic sign warning of “native animals”.
In Colombia, motorcyclists have their license plate numbers on their helmets. With multiple passengers on a motorcycle, often more than one helmet has the license plate number.
I had lunch at this large cafeteria style restaurant. It was located in between the lanes of alternate traffic. No need for walls as there isn’t much seasonal variation in temperature. This area is around 1000m high so not quite as hot as the lowlands.
As I got close to 90km, I went into center of Tulua. It was a busy crowded little city. I had picked several hotels from the internet and second one looked reasonable. Otherwise, nice to be in middle of one of these Colombian towns.
