26/08/13 Stage 14 Motupe - Lambayeque

26/08/13 Stage 14 Motupe - Lambayeque by malcandmarjetpatterson at Garmin Connect - Details

Luckily today was the easiest day riding so far (very flat and only 70 km) because Malcolm was feeling decidedly unwell. It wasn't the best of rides either. It was very busy and the hard shoulder was very bumpy and kept disappearing. The scenery was depressing, the roadsides filthy in places, it was noisy and dusty and the headwind became stronger and stronger. When we first arrived in Lambayeque it looked a depressing place but as so often before the centres are often surprisingly nice with well kept parks and squares. It does make you wonder about the difference in the standards of living though.
