Yesterday we biked from Babahoyo to San Jose de Chimbo; – 2750 altimeters in a day and always in the subtropic rain! After this climb our legs hurts and the rain stopped as soon as we reached the Sierra. We have had a very warm welcome by the priest of chimbo, “Pepe”; – he is a relative from Martha Garcias from the Swiss embassady.
Now we are in good physical shape and enjoy the wonderful people and the maginficant landscape. At the moment we are in Garanda and will bike tomorrow to 4800 m over sea level to the mountain hut on Chimborazzo. – It will be the first time somebody climbed Chimborazzo from the sea only with human power.
