Odyssey 2000 riders breezed into this British Colony, after a 14 hour bus ride from Barcelona, Spain. (We had planned to fly-in originally -- but logistics and/or co$t said, "Take the bus!") First impressions: the seagulls have the run of the place; they nest in every nook & cranny on the rock face; they've bombed all exposed surfaces with their droppings! (Yuck.) Medical update: I barged into the Spanish medical dispensary & got diagnosis, antibiotic, pain-killer & tube-sock for infected left kneecap. Ouch! (But no amputation.) -AC
