Yesterday I had been cycling uphill for more than 50 kilometers, with a short descend at the end. Today I was cashing in on the work. The first 70 kilometers where pretty much downhill, and I was enjoying the cycling a whole lot!

As I was getting near another charming Argentinian village I could see the clouds below me in the valley. Up where I was it was sunshine.

I went to a small store to buy a some biscuits and a cold drink. I don’t think they see many tourists out here.

After a short break at the square (which had free Wifi!) I was back in the country side. A group of wild horses were crossing the road just in front of me. Shortly after I was cycling into the province of Catamarca. The road turned into dirt, but a nice one of the kind. I could still keep a good speed as I was descending towards a bigger town called Tinogasta.

At this point I had already cycled 92 kilometers but still needed another 45 to reach the planned destination at Fiambala. The legs still felt good, so I after a big lunch at a restaurant at the square I decided to go for it.

I arrived in Fiambala with the last sunlight and quickly found a camp site for the night. The last hours of cycling had been hard, but it felt great to make more than 100 km of progress in a day. It’s a while since I have done that.
