Heya Pete

We have a part time SPOT that only feels like talking when IT wants too, rest of the time it sit there in silence

They are replacing it with another talkative one.

Hey Kiwi - just because you have broken ribs doesn't mean no updates - get on with it.

Antigua To Guatemala City

Due to peer pressure ... here it is

Well it started off as a normal day with Richard coming to pick us up at Julios to take the scenic way to Guatemala City rather than the main drag.

Right on time for a 9.00 am start Richard arrived at 9.45 am ...thats cool it set the mood for the day which was cruzy.

Setting off we climbed straight out of Antigua through Santa Maria de Jesus on a nice road, the road turned to gravel on the other side of the town, we did catch some roadworks for a short while which made for interesting riding but other than that was plain sailing with great views.

Following Richard



Locals busy at work



Small patch of roadworks which made things interesting



Getting into Palin Richard took us into a restaurant in centro, we had pork with tortillas which was very nice indeed and Maya was creating a bit of interest on the street.





Leaving Palin we headed toward Pacaya Volcan taking in spectacular views with a perfect weather day and the mountain top in full glory.



Not long into the trip we found a patch of volcanic sand/dust on a tight corner, with gravity against us and the front tyre loosing traction Maya started to go down.

We were just about to a stand still when I could not hold her up any longer and off we went, Ellen and Maya were fine but I landed just a bit wrong on the road and managed to clean break two ribs and fracture two others which turned out to be less than ideal.

I could not ride Maya now so I had a ride in an ambo to Guatemala city, Maya had to be put onto a deck truck and bought to the city.

Arriving at hospital I was not a happy camper as any of you who have broken ribs will know about.

This is my happy hospital look



They took the X rays which confirmed the breaks/fractures however medically they can’t do anything more than give me some hard drugs and tell me to take a cement pill and harden the fook up...easier said than done on the HTFU front.



So I was all taped up for support and drugged up to take away the pain and start the slow recovery.

I did have a few sneezes in the first days which bought tears to my eyes and some blood curdling screams of pain so it certainly was not a highlight of my life, not sure I will list this as one of life accomplishments on my resume.

Fast forward two weeks now things are starting to improve but I still have one really bad spot and on rechecking the X rays it appears I have one rib that has completely come apart and gone down a notch so I will be back in tomorrow for hopefully a better X ray to see what is happening, we are now back in Antigua and I am recovering slowly still strapped up and on drugs...

Maya is still in Guatemala City and will return on a fine day when Julio or Gene can bring her back .

So being here in Antigua things are easier to get too being a smaller town, also Gene and Neda (Lightcycle on ADV) rocked into town and are doing Spanish for a month so last night we were all invited to Casa Guaterider (Julios) for TEA ... dinner for you foreign fellas, we also met Richard Harwood who hit a cow in El Salvador, unfortunately his good lady took the hit and needed surgery, best to her to come right too.

So we had a gathering, Julio cooked a fine lot of Thai curry which we scoffed with Red wine and beers ... good times all round.

Where is the pic of you writhing on the ground in agony? That's really all we wanted to see.

Best of luck with the recovery mate. Don't rush it or you'll just end up back in the boat.

Boob job???? Keep eating that pork and chocolate and you'll need a tummy tuck not an extension if just to see it.

Looks good that pig....I say let it go and lower the CG for better handling.

Good Luck tomorrow.

Yeah bein very careful on how many "goodies" and how much "comfort fud" I eat, not doing any exercise other than walking it would be easy to make my pants shrink
