All those people met in Mexico that host us like that while they were just meeting us : this park guard in Guerrero who opened a room behind the public toilets; the judge in Encino that opened what’s used as a prison; Ramón in Posta Jihuites who set up a camp for us under a pick-up roof; Felix in Corrales that opened the community hall; Dolores in Canatlán that invited us to sleep in her store; Raúl, firstly met in Northern Canada that invited me to his house in Celaya; Concepción in Maravatio, who without hesitating invited me to her house.

All the people met on or that hosted me. Not only they permitted me to rest, but also made me learn about and appreciate local culture. Some even recommended me to friends or family to meet later on the road. Thanks for everything. Hopefully I’ll be able to host travellers like that as soon as possible.

All those cyclotourists I shared the road with. The exchange of information, tricks and sometimes material give to bicycle travel a community spirit through its players that I wasn’t expecting so strong. We can easily figure out how the world is small belonging to that.
