(above) Today, we began cycling in rain. It eventually let up and we had sunshine (for a while). (below left) A churchyard cemetery, (below middle) our second guide, Antoine, and (below right) Carol smiling at the sun. Karen, our chief guide, volunteered to put our rain gear in the van so we wouldn't have to fool with it. She took off to see how the other riders were doing and we began to get a split-splat from drops from the sky! Fortunately, she raced back to us to return the rain gear before it actually started to rain.
