I just had a nice skype chat with my friend Meghan, but the rest of my day was fairly ordinary. I have felt a bit ‘out of it’ all day, owing to too much alcohol, too little water and too little sleep the night before. I fulfilled my main task though, which was dismantle my bike and pack it into my bike box. I had thought I would build it at Dili airport and ride into the city but I now realise that I should just catch a taxi on arrival – I arrive at the airport at 4.20pm so by the time I am ready to ride it will be close to dark and I don’t fancy my first time riding in a foreign country to be after dark.

All packed up and ready to go!
