2004, July 23: 11:11We are at the city municipality at the moment waiting for the mayor to
appear so we can present another Peace Pole, our eigth of the tour. Tonight
will be our last night in Slovakia, a quick 4 day ride through some of the
most beautiful area yet. The mountains and hill of the Carparthia are
magnificent. We are all enjoying the cheap prices on goods and services,
eating in restaurants as a result.
Heat has become a part of the tour now so we are beginning earlier in the
morning and finishing before the day becomes too hot. Rain however has not
abated, but now it is welcome when it comes.
Another of the NorthCape heros has been temporiarily taken out of action as
a resut of a fall on the slippery slop of a riverbank. Verga is now riding
in the van and hopefully will return to the bike in a few days.
