Day 12 - 40 miles to Morelia

Today we ate an early breakfast and after Bro. Mario prayed for us, we took off down the road. I took it easy today because I can't roll into Morelia until tomorrow at 5 p.m. because there's some kind of reception arranged by the same Zihuatanejo pastor who organized his former church in Tuxpan. Pastor Jacob Sotelo is supposed to drive up from Zihuatanejo to meet us and we'll be at another church tomorrow evening. If it's anything like Tuxpan, I can't wait.

Having said that, I rode 28 miles. I passed C. Hidalgo at around 10 miles. That's where we had planned to stay, but since we rode ahead to Tuxpan instead of staying in Zitacuaro, C. Hidalgo was too close. Besides that, my legs were tired from yesterday's cycling and the thousand-step climb up the mount. 

At 28 miles, I loaded the bike and we drove into Morelia to check out the road and take care of a few errands. I picked up my laptop, which has been here since last month, and I took my bike for a tune-up. After all the rain and grit on the road...and nearly 500 miles, it needed it. It should be good for the climb tomorrow.

I'm also taking advantage of the internet in the hotel where we're staying to upload yesterday and today's posts.

I'm so tired right now. It's 9:30 and I'm ready to sleep.
