Napa Cross-country Photos

It took us a while to go through all the photos from Napa (over 300) and pick out the ones we wanted to use. (The delay was exacerbated by a software meltdown in the camera that forced a switch to completely manual metering and focussing...)

Anyway, here are the photos...

Yesterday's rest day was definitely a pleasure, and treat for all of us. We made the 45 minute mountainous drive from Port of Spain over to the beach of Maracas. It is a beautiful drive, over the mountain range, overlooking the ocean. Very spectacular. The roads are totally crazy, very narrow, very curvy, and very steep!!

We all piled into a MAXI taxi, these are NISSAN vans, that the locals call MAXI taxis. They are the trini form of public transport. The drivers are local guys, with a "taxi" license, loud music pumpin, and, of course, totally pimped up mini vans (tinted windows, lowered down vans, with mag wheels!! ) So we made it to the beach, spent a few hours splashing around, gathering up as much of the sun as we could!!

Today was another rest day, spent mostly on the bikes. 2 hour road ride this morning, followed by an tour of downtown with all of the international cyclists. We were all on bikes, handing out flyers all over downtown. Much like a parade! Short stop at the mayor's office, meeting the mayor and other councilmen, quick drink of gingerale with his excellency. Then off to hand out more flyers downtown. Over 2 hours handing out flyers, meeting the locals! It was a total blast, and hopefully the guys got a bit of the local atmosphere out of the experience.

Tomorrow is a 1 hour criterium around the Queens Park savannah. A local civic park, with a 4 kilometer road around it. Very flat, should be a rocket fast race.

Hope everyone is okay back in Canada.. We are doing very well here!!

Take care,

Kurt
