Don't worry - I'm coming!

From China with Love(lock)
I bumped into Jono tonight, in a wheelchair, and looking particularly ghastly.
TC: 'Jono, What have you done to your good looks?!'
JL: 'I crashed racing... in China. I'll send you some pics'
Further testament to the adage that you cannot measure a cyclist by their legs (or oil applied too) - Jono must be hiding Phar Lap's heart inside his chest because he seems to bouce back stronger every time, and has taken this recent spill in his stride. Haven't heard him complain once.
Without further verbage, stolen from his own place in the ether...
Sitting in the ditch, no memory of this point in time. Check the gash on my left cheek! Geez, bit dirty!
Clean cut to my right shin, rock on.

Oh my god, he's alive!
Good job Doc

Sweet memories of a fun trip with a rough finish. I learnt a lot in two weeks, most importantly to enjoy the good times while you can; who knows when you are going to career off a road into a rocky ditch at 70 Kph? Exactly, no one knows, it could happen to you!
But seriously, I got some time off now and some study to start, it never stops!
Have a good one.
And now to peek at my right shin. Basically the tendons here got severed agaisnt the jagged rock face I hit. So the Chinese surgeon stapled the tendons back together then stapled up my leg like so. Some big nasty stitches there!
And spot the dirt and mould on the roof above me, this is the view from my Hainan hospital bed. Fortunately I was not able to snap photos of the rat under my bed.
I've got loads to write up about the actual tour and about the political drama of getting from the Chinese Hospital to the airport and on the plane! The last 5 days have been draining like no other 5 days of my life!
Quick outlook on the recovery is looking like the broken hip will heal fine on it's own with a few weeks rest and the tendons on my right leg need a similar recovery time.
Bad hair day.
but brain looks good.
