Argentina

This is just a quick post to let you know that I made it to my granny’s house in Quilmes, Buenos Aires, a direct flight from London Heathrow to Ezeiza airport where I put my bike together and cycled straight to Quilmes, with no muggings or mishaps.

Unfortunately I don’t have the right adapter for my smartphone so might not be able to post here for a while. There are also a few things to share about my last week in London.

It’ll be a week of meeting old friends and seasonal festivities so I won’t have time to write anyway. I plan to stay here in Quilmes for at least a couple of weeks – this is not an adventure tour, I´m here to hang out with my mother’s elderly family who I haven’t seen for 11 years.

I’ve arrived in a heat wave, it’s 35 degrees Celsius in the shade, and feels like 45 because of high humidity. Quite a shock after I’ve just been training my body to generate loads of heat for sleeping outdoors at freezing temperatures. Hopefully the storm and the rains will come and then things will be back to the normal 30 Celsius…

  1. Awesome! Glad to hear you’re safe and sound and the cycle ride from the airport was predictably uneventful :) Came onto find your post about the man you met in the park with the sit back bicycle in the park…remembered it cuz of a film called Benda Bilili in Kinchasa, Congo which is a film bout street musicians-4 of whom ride bikes like that as they’re paraplegic.Merry Christmas amigo!

    • Hola amiga! Great to hear from you!

      I must check out some of Benda Bilili’s music, their story is quite something. Those bikes look a fair bit slower than the recumbent bike I was trying out, but hey, can’t expect much without legs!

      I put a photo of us at Noah’s party on my blog, as always let me know if that’s not cool! x
