Charlie. It is hard not to be a little defensive about our slow pace. We end up entering into long explanations when asked where we came from that day or when we started, two of the most common questions. We’re comfortable with it but it isn’t a sound bite.
We went 10 miles yesterday but today is only 4 because we wanted to stay in Santo Domingo which we didn’t have much time in last trip. (See, now I’m explaining it to you!) At breakfast an English bloke asked where we were going to today. We looked at each other and laughed and started explaining.
