Hayfield
Journey's end, for the time being, is Hayfield, Derbyshire, United Kingdom. Earlier this month I flew from Chiapas, Mexico, then self-quarantined for two weeks. Since I've been free, I've caught up with friends and family, reacquainted myself with old haunts around Hayfield and Glossop. Next week I will start a new job, a new chapter in my adventure, working as a technical writer for a bespoke joinery business. I'll tell more about the decision to return soon, but just wanted to check in and let everyone know where I am.

Next summer I hope to be back on the bike, tour guiding for a European cycling holiday company. In the longer term, I still want to travel by bicycle through South America and Africa, once the situation is more settled with coronavirus and its collateral effects. My best guess is that's probably two years or more away. Let's see. In the meantime, I'm excited to be back in my old community, and more grateful than ever to be among old friends.

More tales to follow from the last year in Mexico. And then there's the possibility of that book I always threatened to write... But right now, the sun's out and the open spaces are calling to me, so I'm off for a run on the local hills. My local hills 🙂

A quick tour of where I've been holed up for the last two months during the Coronavirus pandemic, my 'second home from home' in the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico. I feel lucky to have found this place. I hope everyone is well and coping during these straitened times. Much love from Mexico!

El Arcotete Parque Ecoturistico
Another hike in my local hills, another cave system, this one with a river flowing through it. It's the fourth time I've been to this spot, El Arcotete, but the first time I had my camera. Also included are a few photos of some of the amazing flowering bromeliads that decorate the broadleaf trees on the higher slopes. They are 'air plants', or epiphytes, that get their nutrients from the rain and from debris accumulating around them.
