I’m still very ill. The new pills are making me feel nauseous, but the ulcers are slowly improving.
The hotel maid is kindly doing our laundry for us. All our clothes still smell bad from being packed wet last week. The restaurant in Hotel Madrid only charges €7.50 per person for a 3-course evening meal including wine. (A real bargain, although the food is bloody awful)
We’ve managed to find a route on the map that will enable us to continue. It will involve some dirt tracks and will add quite a few kilometres to the ride, so it’s likely to be a couple of days ride to Almería.
