I’m still in Florianopolis and still have not found a reasonable bike so I am still running most mornings. Running muscles are definitely different from cycling muscles and then, being sat down all day at the meeting that I’m attending, I feel rather old and stiff when I get up. Every morning there are one or two black skimmers feeding just off the beach. The flying skill of these guys is impressive.
My fund-raising passed the half-way to target this week, which is really encouraging – it is really difficult to know what the target ought to be. I chose high to try to stretch myself. Thanks to all who have been so charitably generous. I advertised in the meeting this morning – maybe some more international donations on their way!
