I had no idea how beautiful the countryside is down here! Loving it. It’s strange, but understandable, to see homes that have dikes all the way around them out in the countryside. They build an earthen “wall” and have a road that goes up and over to get in! Good idea, all things considered!
Last night was a very touching event. We arrived and were taken to a beautiful banquet facility where we had the best meal yet. It was an intimate affair with a number of survivors rom the area. After dinner, each of them got up and told something of their journey, their thoughts, their hopes. It was wonderful. I think it was the most moving event we’ve attended so far.
Today the weather started a little dreary, but it has shaped up and the ride will be lovely — a light wind, sunshine and puffy white clouds. Perfect riding weather.
