2015 Puerto Rico bicycle tour, Day 13

Three flags flying in the breeze

Friday Decenber 18, San Juan to San Francisco, California

Thanks Patty for the flag image at the top of the page. (The flags were at half mast because of the California shootings.)

I was able to get into the basement to finish packing my bike about 7:45. It took me an hour or so. The shops were not open yet so I had breakfast at Manolín, where we had eaten the first day. Inexpensive and good. The Hotel Milano offers a continental breakfast for $5 at the fourth-floor restaurant, but it is pretty wimpy. After breakfast I got my shopping done before I had to go to the airport.

The trip home reminded me why I hate airplane travel. The flight from Ft. Lauderdale to SFO was 3 hours late taking off, which meant I missed the last Airport Express bus of the night in San Francisco. So I had to hang around outside the baggage claim area of SFO until the first bus the next morning at 5:30. By the time I get home it was about 29 hours since I had last touched a pillow.
