I set off before sunrise to make it to Puebla today. I’m now close to Mexico City and the traffic is terrible. After a wile I get on the ring road around the city and traffic gets a bid less. I push hard and arrive in Puebla around 6pm, just on time to catch a tropical thunderstorm. It rains for 15 minutes but with such a force that the roads flood. In the city I have to carry my bike through knee-deep water. I still make it to the office of my tool sponsor, the Hoffmann Group. They have prepared a little reception and a fantastic dinner. We spent a wonderful evening together and I’m happy for a change from my usual routine.
