So I am over a week into Mexico now and loving it.
It has been great traveling with Tim and Nick who have been putting me through my paces with a few challenging days in the saddle!
Some of the desert landscape that I have witnessed in the last few days has been one of the real highlights of the trip so far. It is certainly not like anything I have seen before.
I had been warned to be very careful around the cacti as they have been the cause of many a touring cyclists puncture. Strolling along one evening I still managed to get one embedded in my leg. Getting it out took a while as the spikes were at all different angles!
