First part of the travel went well....

The travel so far has been without complications, but still a little bit tiresome. I'm now in Madrid, where I will have to spend the night before the plane departs directly to Lima Peru tomorrow. The picture is taken at the Madrid Airport, while I'm wating for the transport to the hotell.

After requests from fellow travellers I have decided to put the information in English.

I'm now sitting in the Gras Hotel Colon in Madrid enjoying a little glass of Famouse Grouse while I'm gaining my energy back. Travelling is by the way tiresome stuff. A lot of people, a lot of noise and a lot of waiting. The only positive thing about it is that it eventually gets you to the place where the journey really starts - Lima Peru.

The trip so far for my part has gone via Oslo, London og then to Madrid. In total it has taken about 10 hours waiting included, and I just have to admit that I dont envy the journey of Lars and Hege. If I remember correctly, they have a total travel time of about 32 hours before we meet at Hotel Hacienda in Lima. I'm pretty sure they will be exhausted, and that we will stay in Lima for another day.

It's both a cultural shock and a temperature shock to be here. 10 o'clock in the evening it's a cloudfree sky and the temperature is 25 degrees. The driver who brought me here to the hotell could only say yes and no in English, and he drove the car as he was a native Indian. It's just to hols tight, and put all your trust in existence. If you're supposed to arrive, you will arrive. After a while I did however discover that he was most certainly not unique. The trafic here compared compared to Norwegian trafic, makes Norwegia drivers look like slow, scared and much to polite drivers. It's full gas, and they take full advantage of all available space, both areas with asfalt on and areas without. That time is relative has also been proven. I have never since India seen such short three seconds between cars, but then again a lot of the cars have scars that proves that time might not be that relative anyway.

Now I'm gonna take a nice and long hot shower, and if I find the energy I will take a closer look at the city. Most probably the bed will be to tempting.
