On the Road from Banes, Cuba Feb 14, 2014

Dear Friends,

A brief update.  My cold of several weeks is better and will likely leave here tomorrow morning for Mayari, then Moa and Baracoa.  Have heard the roads east are not the greatest with lomas or hills in places.  So little by little will be able to make some progress ahead.

A little more difficult is arranging a place to stay.  Foreigners are restricted from staying in private homes although with a religious visa which I don't have it is possible.  And I have been able to stay in Friends churches but Banes is the last of them headed east.

Met a Canadian cyclist from Vancouver Island on my way here and we had fun talking boats.  He's building a 35 foot sail boat from steel and hopes to have it in the water this year.  He's been at it awhile.  Leaves his bike in Holquin with a friend and was out for a day trip.  He made the eastern circuit I'm on last year.

All for the moment,

Peace Rider
