Change of landscape !
There is a saying that the more North you travel in Flordia - the more South you get ! I think that the pictures from todays run might illustrate a little bit of this: The houses, the naighbourhoods, the ambience... All reminds of what a 'typical southern state' looks like in the Usa. Atleast to an european visitor ;-)
Another change of landscape so to speak was the social encounters. It was surely one of the more busy days of this second world run:
First I met with K-G. Nystrom from Sweden; one of the classics' in ultrarunning no matter wether you take part in an ultra-race in Europe, N. America or Africa. Then we went to buy a new laptop since my old one from South America had broken down (therefore the little delay in updating the reports). Then eating some interesting instant-pizzas with K-G. at our local motel. Then, just as I expected to get to sleep I got surprising company - two girls knocked on the door of my room: They wondered if they could use the bathroom for a moment. I didnt find anything strange in that, so I let them in. It might be a showcase of Scandinavian naiveness - since once inside the door it turned out that these friendly girls were much more interested in offering certain services, far closer connected with bed-activities than actually a need to use the bathroom.
Ofcouse, beeing the focused runner that I am I (fairly politely) told them that I needed to get my rest as it was close to midnight. And that happened to be a kind of rest where only one person uses the bed ;-)
