I went back to La Jungla for breakfast: fried dough with a hot and spicy fruit drink that was excellent. Out of the hotel and into the chaos of the streets of La Paz for a short ride down into the valley. I rang the bell at the casa de los ciclistats but no one answered so I kicked around the city park for a while, had lunch, and hid from the rain under a bus stop. Around 1pm I rang the bell again at the house and a French woman, Aurélie, answered.
I spent the afternoon swapping stories and comparing routes with Aurélie until Cristian, the owner of the house, came home. We talked cycling and bicyclers for a while, then I went shopping in a bona-fide supermarket.
I spent the evening speaking French with Aurélie and a friend of hers from Montpelier. Nice to have some extended human contact...
