Wow, this was a really, really bad week for me. Work load is quite insane, we have way too much going on right now, and I was sick. Really sick. Haven't been hit that bad for longer than I care to remember. Can't recall a single time in the last twenty years that I had more than 39 centigrade fever. Normally I don't get fever at all. Me at 38 is close to dying ... And the last time I recall it being higher than 39 I was still in school. The whole thing started with headaches and joint pain last week, got better for a day or two, then coughing started on Monday, stayed home sick Tuesday with 38.x fever, went to work Wednesday and half of Thursday when I just couldn't do anything anymore and went home. Checked, 39 fever! No wonder I felt like shit.
Okay, enough of this. It got much better on Friday and I was on normal temperature Friday evening. Today was a nice enough day, so in the afternoon we decided to ride up to Alice for dinner. It looked like a rainstorm up there but it was actually dry, just kind of dark already at 18:45 ... had a nice dinner, went back home. Both ways we took the short and quick route: Foothills Expressway (yeah, an "Express" Way - you have to stop every 400m for red lights, what a shitty concept), Arastradero Rd., Alpine, Portola Road, Highway 84 to Alice.
The way back was in the dark. A first for Andrea, but it wasn't a big problem. I was riding ahead and so she had at least a good bearing in front of her.
It was really exhausting after being sick for so long. No pictures - no time and no light. Sorry. I'm glad the week is nearly over ... but the weekend could last another couple days.
