17 Jun A gift to us
Day 96 (13 Jun 2013) – Conversation while getting a beer at the Glaciar sports-bar after a long day of riding.
Bar owner (Sergio): “Where are you from?”
Sergio: “That is strange”
Ron laughing: “Why is this strange?”
Sergio: “Because it is a long way away!”
Ron: “We are just cycling around the area.”
Sergio: “Would you like to go kayaking with us and 70 teenagers tomorrow? It is my gift to you!”
Us: “Sure, thank you! When do we show up?”
Sergio: “10.00 o’clock”
Us: “And if we want to help getting the kayaks ready?”
Sergio: “Then come at 9:00”
and so we did…The bar is located right there at our campsite and the river Tejo runs just below it.
We help moving kayaks, fasten the seat-backs in them, and get the paddles ready…
Soon afterwards about 70 excited, happy, giggly, teenagers appear to celebrate their last school-day of the year on the river Tajo.
…..and then the fun begins!
