37 miles, 955 feet of climb, 469 ft max
My last few days before returning to Concepción are short ones. That was by design. In case something goes wrong I'm not far from my airplane home. Today was only 37 miles, all on pavement. I had strong headwinds, but I figure that if one must have headwind, at least let it be on a short day.
It was sprinkling toward the end of the ride. When it started to rain in earnest
I ducked into a handy bus stop to wait it out. After a half an hour it was clear
it wasn't going to let up so I put on full rain gear and rode the rest of the way
On the way into town I noticed the Mapuche Museum on the left. If it hadn't been
raining I would have ridden back to see it after checking into the hotel.
Tomorrow is a very short day, so I can come back to visit the museum in the
morning before heading back north.
I ate in the Club Social on the plaza. This is another one of those restaurants
that you'd never find if the guidebook hadn't told you it was there. For once I
didn't have lomo a lo pobre. Instead I had congrio a lo pobre. Same onions,
fried eggs, and huge pile of french fries, but with fish instead of steak.
