Was a really relaxing day today. Heh, Nice to take a day off after every couple of days! But it’s been nice here and I had plans to catch up with some old travel mates.

I had a lovely b’fast again, and chatted with Antonio’s family for a while. Most of them are artisans making religious artefacts, and the younger ones seem to be going off of the family business and pursuing different dreams. I suppose it’s similar to most families I know, mine for one. The access to education offers a change for people I reckon. To be honest, I was having a chuckle when I noticed ‘religious artefacts’, reminded me of Frank Costanza 🙂 The family had been really sweet and we had some nice conversations.

In the afternoon, I decided to go and meet Stephan and Ulli. You might not remember, but I met the couple all the way back in Jasper National park, Canada. Here’s a link to jog the memory! It’s been almost 6 months, but surprisingly we kept in touch on and off.

One might think that there might be mild snobbery between cyclists and motorcyclists, but with Stephan and Ulli, I seem to share the joy of travelling irrespective of the mode of transport. We met up in town and walked around talking about travels and other tales. It was nice to meet them after all this time, funny to think that we met just for about 10 minutes all these months back. Travelling is a strange experience indeed.
