So much different working in AC, with decent wifi. So accustomed to working in sun, w/ iffy wifi. Herenow can afford some indoors food!
Woke up early again. Beautiful sunrise!
Now planning my ride through the interior.
The first step involves a large climb to get to Santiago, the biggest city in the area.
I have to stock up on provisions before setting out, it looks like there aren't many towns along the way.
Then I'm probably going to head towards the second largest city, San Francisco de Macoris.
The upcoming larger city, Santiago de los Caballeros, is only 60 km away. However, the elevation goes over 842 m.
From Santiago to San Francisco, the distance is another 60 m. In this case, the route has only 143 m of elevation difference, largely downhill.
After that, I plan to make up a route, probably including Cotui, Bonao, and various other towns, depending on weather, interest, time, etc.
Then, it looks like I'll probably return to San Francisco, on the way back down to the coast.
Along the remainder of the coast, a city and a few more towns remain.
Then, make my way to Haiti!
As we continue to make our way, whether through countries or within a single residential area, we reorganize ourselves to improve delivery.
Likewise, the lands through which we travel, literally or figuratively, reorganize themselves to improve their delivery.
