A completely flat day in nice weather. During the morning I ride past huge cactus plantations and ranches. At noon Carlos Santamaria joins me and we ride around 100 km together. Carlos set the Panamerica World Record a few years ago and lives on my route in San Luis Potosi. Great to share some adventure stories and get insights into the challenges ahead. Colombia and Peru were the toughest for him, so I have something to look forward to. After saying goodbye to Carlos I continue another 60 km to Santa Maria del Rio. A little town with a beautiful colonial center. I stay in the center, enjoy some Tacos and the nice atmosphere.
