Campsite is next to the main road about 20km from Dila the next town.

Cycled 130km today...very nice ride, as the scenery changed to being really tropical 7 equatioriial.....banana and coffee plantataions, and lush dense vegetation.

There were a few long and stepish climbs, but it turned out that the big hill wasn't today but tomorrow...lucky for us.

The people intrusiuon factor is still the main negative issue....one has zero privacy here.....around our campsite now must be 100 kids just standing at the rope boundary staring at us....!

Lots of stories about this coming up.....

Till tomorrow...cheers
