Reaching Chaneral and getting ready for tomorrow leaving the Panamerican Highway (highway5) for the first time in weeks - in exchange for a detour but possible shortcut through "Pan de Azucar" National Park at the Pacific coast.
On todays run along the main highway I had the thrill of meeting other long-distance travellers: an isrealean couple who are bicycling through Chile; they are doing about 60km pr day, so I hoped to perhaps try to keep up with them for a few days but they will stay on the Panamerican' so it was just a quick but interesting exhange of "slow traveller stories" as we picked our food in the first supplypoint in a couple of hundred km's; the charming city of Chaneral !
