Well, that turned out for the best last night stopping in a hotel! It started to rain at about 1 am and rained for the rest of the night! It was still raining when I got up this morning!
The last two days of riding have been more challenging and more painful than people realise, hills aside! On Saturday morning, as I was loading my bike, I tripped and fell onto the concrete ground! Unfortunately, when I fell, I managed to somehow fall onto my clenched fist, which went into my ribs! Crack, I felt my ribs go! I was pretty winded and had a grazed knee but my ribs really hurt! Those last few days of cycling were excruciating, especially with all the hills!
It’s not been much better today, sitting around. Every time I take a deep breath, twist, turn or laugh, it hurts! Not that I do often (laugh that is) at least now I’ve got a good excuse not to laugh, I can be Mr Grumpy all the time! At least I’m already taking some pretty strong painkillers so it does ease the pain a bit and it was at the end of the tour!
I spent this morning milling around the hotel, as it was still raining, apart from popping across the road to get a haircut. After lunch, I went to the ferry terminal and left Spain at about 3.15 pm local time.
