Weird images stick in my memory, a swathe of absurd scenarios. Three adult males have to bend their necks towards the table and try to let their slurping mouths meet the edges of the cup and the restorative fluids. We try to communicate but the assertions sound like senseless crap beyond comprehension. We witness mutual speech defects – maybe we’ve all got Alzheimer’s like a flash from a dark and rainy sky? Have we been attacked by a collective fit of the shakes? Who knows? We just know that we are freezing cold while we acknowledge that the table becomes filled with small streams of tea and coffee – embarrassing, but there’s nothing we can do about it.

Already on the climb to the small town of Caimari the first raindrops fall, but the asphalt is so miserable that it forces us to find and avoid potholes and rocks. On top of that, there’s no risk of getting cold spinning at a reasonable cadence, least of all when a flock of accelerating Germans comes from behind and you try to catch on to the last two fast and shapely female riders.
